Some post spawn bass have moved to open water off deep points. Try fishing these areas using spinnerbaits, different colored deep diving crankbaits and soft plastic lures.
Bream can be caught in shallow waters. Try fishing near structure in shallow coves using crickets and worms.
Most of the crappie have moved out of the grass and can be caught in medium and deep depths along ledges and around structure. Try fishing around the island using minnows and jigs as well.
Tight-lining on the bottom with liver, worms or blood baits should be the best method for harvesting catfish this time of year.
