The crappie continue to eat good all day most days, in and around any wood in the lake in 12-30 feet of water; use minnows and jigs.

No report on walleye other than a lot are being caught around all of the other fish schooling.

Bream are eating crickets and crawlers in 6 inches to 15 feet of water.

Catfish are eating all over the lake on a variety of baits, and a variety of depths and techniques.

Black bass are eating just about anything in your tackle box if you put it in front of one, in depths from super shallow out to 60 feet.

Hybrid and white bass are eating spoons, inline spinners, topwater baits and the like all over the lake in 25-60 feet of water, with a lot of fish on the surface in places as well. Just stay around the shad.
