Largemouth Bass Bass are in shallow waters around structure and vegetation. Use willow bladed spinnerbaits and soft plastic worms to catch these fish. Also, search for bass that have begun making beds.
Crappie The best place to catch fish right now is in deeper water. Try fishing along the edge of the creek channel. If your fishing for crappie in shallow water target these fish near emergent vegetation. The best baits to use are live minnows or jigs tipped with nibble on the trailer.
