Spinner baits, Rattle traps and shallow running crank baits are great for the Bass.
Try fishing around the edges of the grass and brush. They like to hold in the backs of coves or creeks. Also try around the boat houses brush piles or grass around them.
Catfish take to the trotlines and jug lines in 14 to 18ft of water using live perch or shad. Thirty to fifty pounders aren't uncommen. Try shad, shrimp or Danny Kings punch bait when fishing in 2 to 14ft of water with the rod reel. if fishing shallow fish try some soured maze.
Another tip for summertime is to beat the heat of the day and the anglers by trying a bit bass fishing by night.Your lures will look a bit different to the fish making for some great catches. As we move towards the cooler climes the Bass will move into the creeks and around the boat docks.
