Bass fishing is fair. Soft plastics fished 12 to 15 feet deep have been effective recently, and a few fish are being caught on topwater lures. Quite a few big bass have been caught this year at Calling Panther: twelve 8 pound bass, a 10 pounder, a 9 pound bass, two 7 pound bass, and an 11 pounder. See below...
Above: 9 pounds
Below: 11 pounds 2 ounces
Bream fishing is fair to good. Bluegill on crickets and earthworms fished on bottom are working well for redear.
Some nice Redear Sunfish caught recently.
Crappie fishing is still slow. Minnows are best in 10 to 12 feet of water.
Sue Thornton and the new record crappie for Lake Calling Panther at 2.2 pounds.
The catfish bite is fair. Anglers using large minnows, night crawlers, chicken livers, and cutbait are having success.
