The catfish bite is still fair. While the bite slowed toward the weekend, bigger fish were reported being caught. The “Whopper of the week” came in at 14lbs on fresh frozen shad. Several 8 to 10 lb. fish were in the mix as well. Mac – Bites and shad were the baits that produced the most action for catching the catfish. Crappie is still being caught in moderate numbers. Morning and late evening anglers have had the most success using mini jigs under a float near rocky underwater structure and points. Largemouth bass bite is starting to heat up for boat anglers. Crank baits and Spinner baits have been getting the job done. Carp are also being caught in huge numbers on dough baits. Tip of the week; shore anglers set your drag before casting your line out. You might just go home with no fish and no rod as a result. Tight lines until next week.
Next stocking will be at the end of April, just in time for the 2017 Dream Extreme Fishing Derby. Get on out and join the fun. For more information contact Williams Bait, Tackle and Boat Rentals at 951-642-0640.
