Lake level is 606.7. Water temp is about 60 on most peoples electronics.
CRAPPIE: The bite is pretty good right now anywhere from near the banks in some spots on some days to 20 FOW on other days. If you have brushpiles to fish now is a good time to try them out at varied depths. Black/Chartreuse seems to be a good color to start with. Some days they want big minnows and some days they seem to prefer smaller ones. Not that you won’t catch fish if you have the wrong ones, but they just seem to bite quicker on a particular size any given day. Maybe by adding a nibble it will reduce that factor.
CATFISH: Blues seem to be the better bite right now between the 2 bigger species, but channels are also a pretty good bite now. The blue bite should only get better as the water cools down as they feed up for winter. Shad, perch, and asian carp seem to be doing well.
BASS: We have not heard much about whites lately, but the largemouth bite seems to be doing pretty good the past couple of weeks. Back in the creeks is a good place to start looking for them.
NOTES: We are having our annual anniversary party on Saturday, Oct 29. It will run from 5:00 until who knows when. We will have chili, sandwiches, beer and soda. Come help us celebrate. Call Mary for details. Hard to believe this is our 9th anniversary already. Also, don’t forget, as usual the youth deer hunt is that same weekend, Oct 29 and 30.
