Catching the Spotlight.

The Bass anglers have been doing very well this week. Justin Seouten (right) caught this 7lbs. 8oz. bass on nightcrawlers. He caught it out of Lake 5. Nathan Temple (left) caught this 7lb. bass out of Lake 4. He caught it on a Senko.

The catfish have also been doing well this week. Anglers are still mostly catching them on shrimp and mackerel. Anglers trying stink baits or dip baits have also been catching catfish.

The water has been very clear in most of the lakes. Anglers are taking advantage of this while the bass are still bedded down for the spawn. Catfish have been biting like crazy in Lakes 3 and 4. They are mostly being caught on shrimp and mackerel.
