Night fishing season going well!
Catfish are biting great this week. The bite was on. The crowds were heavy and the fish were hitting. Most of the fish are between 1-3 pounds. We had one fish come in over 20 pounds on Friday night. Mackerel and anchovies are working best. There are good numbers of fish being taken out at the Buoy Line. The shoreline by the boat dock is producing good numbers of fish. The fish were also biting well during the daylight hours. The lake will be open from 5 PM to 11:45 PM for night fishing on Friday & Saturday only. Boat rental rates will be $20 for motor boats and $12 for row boats. Rental boats will be called in at 10:45 PM as always. No alcohol or gas lanterns are allowed.
Bluegill action has been good for the kids off the piers. The fish are on the small side but the kids do not seem to mind. Red worms are working best, no one pound or better fish to report.
Bass action was slow this week. The bass are moving around early in the day all along the shoreline. There have been very few anglers targeting the bass over the past few weeks.
