Small bass are now aggressively feeding in shallow water and weed lines. Water temps are quickly warming, and the bass have moved shallow to bed. Please carefully release this time of year. Clouser minnows with an aggressive short strip jigging action are working in chartreuse and white and all white. Smaller sizes are preferred down to size 6.
Bluegill reports have returned shallow as the water warms. Popper dropper combinations trailing a hares ear or pheasant tail are productive as they are not selective at this time.
Crappie (specs locally) have slowed dramatically. Only one report of crappie using slow trolling techniques.
Bluegill fishing should improve in the shallow water as the water continues to warm.
