TIPS & TACTICS

Largemouth Bass can be caught using spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, and plastic worms fished through and around vegetation at 1- to 4-foot depths. Shallow-diving crankbaits fished on the riprap can also be productive. Channel and blue catfish are caught by drift fishing and tightlining with stinkbait or shad. White Bass are often caught by trolling jigs and spinners down windy shorelines. Crappie can be caught from shallow brushpiles on live minnows. Sunfish are caught on live worms and crickets around shallow brush and riprap.
