Bass have moved deeper for the most part, jigs with big chunks worked slow are getting strikes. When the sun comes out and the bait get’s active, the shallow bite is working, sinko’s or fluke’s worked under the surface will also get a strike. The fish are lethargic in cold water so slow moving bait will work best.
Crappie are doing well on jig’s being trolled along the creel ledges. Deeper trash piles are still holding crappie, vertical jigging or minnow’s on a tight line will get some good catches for the dinner table.
Catfish are doing well on jugs in the creeks. Cut bait is best. When the baitfish get active, the cat’s will feed shallower.
Hybrid’s are getting active in 15 to 55 feet. Hammered strata spoons are doing the trick. Fan cast the areas you are working ’till you get a strike. Troll over to the spot and begin vertical jigging the school.
