It has been awhile since I posted anything even though I visit regularly to read about what is going on around the NE part of the state. Over the past few weeks the lake has been up and down but generally above normal anywhere from a foot to five feet. When the lake edge is into the woods and brush around the shore fishing is great for just about any species your after. Our beloved catfish are best early and late on just about any bait you happen to prefer. For those who like to throw a few jugs (myself included) the channel edges and points seem to produce well. Crankbaits and inline spinners are producing sandbass well along the shores also. Soft plastics and spinnerbaits are producing black bass, also along the shore when the lake is up into the woodline and grass. I haven't been doing well with crappie yet but are holding in the deeper water near the usually productive brushpiles I know about. I expect them to be a little more aggresive in a few weeks.
