Fished on the 15th and 17th last week. Trolled worm harnesses, one with half of a night crawler, the other a minnow. The crawlers caught the most.    I was hoping to catch walleye and sauger. I did catch a few but they were all short. Caught several nice white bass, bluegill, a crappie and a bunch of small yellow bass. I only fished the west end of the lake.

Anyone know if crappie are still up tight, or have they started moving back out?

Late report for Easter Sunday. Fished 2pm-7pm. Ended up with 12. Nothing bigger than 11". Had to work for them. Mini-mite under float. Had to keep it moving or no bites. Even tried minnows and not one bite. Did also catch a handful of small whitebass. Great day to be out.

Started off the day bass fishing. Had hard time finding fish as my trolling motor decided to go bonkers. Finally found a cove near the campground that let me drift at a normal speed. Ended up with 6 bass. All released. Nothing huge. Pic is of the biggest one. Ended the day crappie fishing unexpectedly.  First cast i hooked into a beast. My personal best. 2.3lbs caught 5 others 9"-10". All caught on mini-mites. All released. Even the big one. She was full of eggs. Had to let her go.

Fished Labor Day 6am-2pm. The very early morning bite was good for largemouth and saugeye. Nightcrawlers around 10-15 feet for the saugeye and bladed jigs in 3-8 feet with heavy weeds for the largemouth. At 8am the wind did a 90 degree switch and the fish almost completely stopped. Even large schools of bluegills would barely peck at the worms. Weed growth is still very thick, but some patches are already turning a brown shade of color. Whitebass and bait are still out in 25+ feet pretty much all over the lake. Water was 78 when I left. Bring on the cooler weather! Good luck!
