We have seen the lake temps drop from 83 down to 71 and have also seen the lake come up about four-inches with heavy rains. What this has done is completely break up the turn over that started on the north end and very soon this end of the lake will vastly improve.
I am still crappie fishing with a slip bobber and minnow but I have got out my jig poles and doing very well with them especially early in the morning during low light periods. I will be fishing more up on the north end this week and will be using my jig a good amount of the time. I am using a orange Deep Ledge Jig and an orange and chartreuse Midsouth tube and swimming it back and forth over the brush. They don’t want to see the jig setting still.
The white bass I have been locating are very deep and we have been using a 1/2oz. weight on bottom then a circle hook tied a foot above it and fishing on deep drops on the south end of the lake.
