Bass are schooling. Both rattling crankbaits and soft plastics are working well. Also, try top water lures early in the morning or late in the evening and soft plastics in shallow and medium depths.

Bream fishing is fair. It picked up some around the full moon. Crickets and worms are the best baits.

Crappie fishing is slow. Try power trolling at 0.9-1.4 mph with minner critters, crankbaits and minnows.

No current reports on catfish. Fishing around the island should produce some fish. Worms or cutbait fished on the bottom are the baits of choice.
