pecies Rating Size Baits, Method, & Location
Crappie     Fish around any brush or vegetation you can find as well as drop-offs. Minnows under a bobber is probably the best option.
Flathead catfish     Fish live bait around the brush piles.
Wipers     Try drifting live shad, sunfish, minnows, or vertically fishing slabspoons.
Largemouth bass     Try jigs, crankbaits and slow rolled spinnerbaits around wood in the vegetation.
Channel catfish     Try liver, shrimp, worms or cut bait.

Please discard of leftover bait in a trash can, even baitfish. Remember it is illegal to release any fish into public water unless it was taken from that water!
