The water table has finally stabilized for the past week. The stained water remains a constant. The fish are still trying to move shallow, not a lot of oxygen in the muddy water.
Bass are continuing on the same patterns, shallow early on blade baits and top water poppers. Grogs are also getting noticed. Texas rigged creature baits and shaky heads with rattles inserted are also attracting attention. The deeper bite is coming on noisy cranks, Carolina rigs and spoons jigged in the deeper holding schools. Crawfish creature baits are a hot item right now.
Crappie are still trying to stage and are still eating minnows. The shallow bite is still working when you find them near the grassy areas.
Cats are moving shallow to spawn and we are getting quite a few on the crappie rigs while fishing shallow, this is an exciting fight on ultra lite equipment. The jugs are continuing to get a good meal using cut bait.
Pan fish are eating crickets and wigglers along the bank line.
We are still planning on our scheduled dates for the Scott Woodruff Heart Transplant Tournament May 23 and the Alabama Childrens Classic Bass Tournament June 13. Please watch our web site and news letters to keep abreast on our latest up dates. We pray all this confusion will be over by then. Sign up for our news letter at www.alabamachildrensclassic.org.
Enjoy an outing on the lake with your family. It’s a good way to get out of the house and provide some great food for your table. Enjoy what God has provided for us.
Be safe and pray for our doctors and nurses as they stand on the front lines to protect us from this virus. Pray for our leaders as well.
God Bless & Good Fishn’
