Catfish: High Action. Catfish fishing is very hot right now! Any cove, in 5-10 feet of water with cut baits is producing fish. Remember, keep it simple, this is an easy catch.
Bluegill: Slow to Medium Action. Bluegill are mostly hitting on nightcrawlers, mealworms, redworms and crickets across from the marina or East Bay. Use small amounts of bait, only enough to cover a #6 or $10 hook, light line, and small or clear bobbers.
Striper: Low Action. This species craves cooler water. Stripers will be over by the Inlet or in the middle of the lake. Chicken liver, fresh sardines and anchovies are your best bet for bait. Or try umbrella rigs in 10-20 feet of water.
Largemouth Bass: Slow Action. With the hot weather bass are biting best early morning or late afternoon. Try fishing shady sides of cover with long casts so you don’t spook them. Your best bet is small spinners, crankbaits, flukes and swimbaits. You can also try plastic creature baits, crawdads or topwater frog baits.
Trout: No Action.
Carp: Plenty. They spook easy so use blood worms or night crawlers.
