Crappie bite has picked up. Fish are biting in the bushes but still not what it should be for this time of year but there are good fish to be caught you just have to work for them. 


Been catching a few catfish in the bushes wile crappie fishing but that's about all I can tell you about them right now.

It's about the same. With cold front after cold front the water is still in the low 50's and the majority of fish are still deep. I've done best in 10' to 14' jigging.

Launches are fine. The water is high and stained but defiantly fishable. The bite is slow but there are fish to be caught, you just have to put it right in front of them.

Fishing continues to improve every day, altho still not as good as it can be this time of year. Still catching fish on stumps and brush along drop offs in 10' to 15' foot of water using jigs. 

I'm not sure how well you'll do off the shore. The water is still too cold for them to be coming in to spawn. There may be some fish on shallow cover feeding. 

We do have a very few days available between now and June. Give me a call to book a day 618-472-4763
