Hit the water yesterday at 15:00. Fished east of the narrows in 13 - 15 FOW. Had a very successful day with the gills (7 1/2 - 8 1/2") using redworms on a chartreause little festus jig under a slip boober set to a depth of 8'. Also caught 4 small bass using a small minnow on the 100th oz. jig fished clean with a larger split shot for weight. My partner was working various double rig combinations under a slip bobber. He also was doing some drop shotting. Set up in the usual spot for some nite bite crappie fishing with the green under water light. No keeper crappie but we did catch 5 that didn't quite make 10". We called it quits at 21:30. It was a great day on the water...

4th of July weekend report,

Water 72F on Friday morning was 75 by Sunday morning. Hit the lake Sunday morning around 7:30. Was pretty slow bite, with very heavy pressure, basically a boat for every 300 yards of shoreline. 9:30 am bite heated up. Tossed them all back, but caught about 20-30 gills, bass, and perch, all in a 100 yard section of shore. Biggest perch was a 50 year lifetime best 11 1/2 inches. Still swimming, along with another 7 or so 8-1/2 inch plus perch. Crawler bits on ice jig lures. Park in 10-15 FOW and toss toward shore in 5-9 FOW.

Bite totally shut off when the power boats fired up at 10 am.

Best of luck.

As for lack of weeds on the NE side of lake, Spencer Highlands Association contracts an outside firm to treat for invasive species and maybe has some of the regular weeds taken out as well.

Going to fish the lake on and off Friday-Monday, when the boats aren't going around in circles in mass.

Fished yesterday from 11:00 - 13:30 with my son and grand kids, ages 7 & 8. We had a fabulous time catching gills and pumpkinseeds (3" - 7"). My grandson actually caught a 13" bass on an Ironman rod that is only about 30" long. We were using little pieces of crawler on a small gold tru-turn hook under a slip bobber in 3 - 7 FOW along the edges of clumps of weeds. I was really surprised at the lack of weeds on the NE side of the lake, near Berger's Cove. The kids absolutely love looking at the gills in the livewell and then trying to catch them to let them go. All fish caught "go in the pool" and then are released.

Fished from 6 till 10:30 last night in 15 fow. Caught some nice gills first before it got dark. Caught them on glow teardrop tipped with waxie. Then at 7:30 the crappies came around. Was fishing using a dead stick with glow jig and whole minnow and jigging with glow jig tipped with minnow tail. Lots on fish on screen but no takers untill i switched to minnow head. Fish were hitting good. Lost what i think would have been state record for pumkinseed seed. I have caught some monster seeds on this lake but this was the biggest i have seen. thought i had a huge crappie on. I am going to have to get a larger auger,the 6" hole was to small. Hope to get out one last time this year. Tight Lines JIM Cool

Well hit it up between 3:30pm and 10:00pm. Lots of fish on the camera and flasher. Caught a small bass on a tip up right off the bat. Lost the only crappie bite I had for the whole night. My partner managed one 9 inch bluegill and a 7 inch rock bass. Lost his only crappie bite of the night too. Tried everything I know of after fishing this lake for over 40 years. Moved a few times. The fish were there. Just all on the small side, camera verified this. They would come up and look at the bait but would not commit. Maybe the last time I fish Bangs for a long time to come.
