Mostly small to medium sized bass being caught. Largemouth Bass can be found lingering around structure. The bass respond well to dark colored plastics, crawdads, and crank-baits.
Crappie are being caught in small numbers. Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught using finger jigs or live golden shiners.
