The stripers have still been boiling out on the upper lake. Most boils have been out in the open water and main channels, but as of late there has been a lot of wind and the shad have been pushing up into some of the coves. Most boils have been an afternoon deal. The bait bite has slowed down a little with sardines, anchovies, and lug/blood worms working best. The largemouth and smallmouth have also been boiling, mainly in the morning and later in the afternoon. Wherever you can find the shad you can almost bet there are some fish close bye. Other than topwater, flukes and jerk baits have also been working. Down-sizing baits seems to be doing the trick lately. The trusty drop-shot is still producing fish with shad color worms working best. The catfish have slowed down a little, with most catches coming off of mackerel, chicken liver, or anchovies. The trout bite has slowed down as well with power-bait being your best bet at nabbing a few fish. The crappie and bluegill are still biting, typically around any lay-downs or cover. Wax worms and meal worms have been producing the best.
