Water temp is 63 degrees. All fish species seem to have moved up shallow and easier to target.

Bass have been hitting jigs, square bill crankbaits, and spinnerbaits. Some of the bass have already moved up into the creeks.

The majority of crappie are still being caught in the weed beds, however fish are holding on wood cover too. Minnows and jigs are both working well right now, but the trick when fishing the weed beds is to cover lots of water to locate fish. I've seen crappie up to 17 inches caught recently.

Red ear sunfish have moved up shallow (4-5 feet) and hitting well. It's hard to beat a good old lively red worm on the bottom for red ear, but other baits like popeyes tipped with wax worms and meal worms can work too. The same tactics are working well for bluegill too.
