Bass are still holding tight to shallow cover. Blade baits and frogs over the top are producing. When the sun gets high, work tight to the edge of the cover,let the bait sit before moving it. Shaky head trick worms and wacky rigged trick worms are working . Chatter baits are a good bait also.
Deep cover and trash piles are holding fish for the deep fishermen.
Crappie, blue gill and shell crackers are holding close also. We have been catching all three working 1/16 and 3/32 oz. jigs with different colored bodies. Slow retrieve is working. There are also bedding shell crackers on the flats, wigglers are the bait there. You can locate these areas by the smell.
Cat fish ate beginning to load up with roe and will be under the pads soon. Cut bait on jugs or tight lines are getting a good mess for the table.
The day's are getting hotter, b e sure and keep plenty of water and sunscreen while out. Be safe and wear your PFD. We do not need and more tragedies this year.
