Crappie bite is still good. Been fishing 6 to 10 foot of water with jigs or minnows.  We have a few days left in August and September of you would like to get in on some end of summer fishing. We also have very limited days left for the fall bite in October and November call now before we book up. 618-472-4763 for Nick or 618-231-1417 for Bob. 


Channel catfish are also going good using triple S stink bait around drops and structure.

Not really.  Most of the bank fishermen have some success around the docks at the resort or sailboat harbor but that is usually later in the fall and into the winter.

Is there any good spots right now that can catch crappie from the bank this time if year?

Crappie fishing is good using minnows or jigs around structure in 5 to 12 foot of water. 

Channel catfish are also hitting very good using stink bait around structure and dropoffs. 

We still have some days available in August and September for crappie or catfish. We also have very few October and November crappie dates left so call now to book your days! 618-472-4763

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Yes we are still fishing and catching crappie in 6' to 14' foot of water on jigs or minnows around structure.

Lots of different ways to catch bass. I have been having the best luck with crank baits or jigs. 

We are also catching  channel catfish in 8 to 14 foot of water on triple S stink bait (used to be sonneys).

We have also been hoggin lots of big flatheads.

Not really a shore fishermen so I can't help too much in that, but I would try around the resort. There are some docks in there i see some guys having success around. 

Yes they are still spawning up shallow.
