The topwater bass bite has picked up recently due to the colder nights. Popular topwater baits to use have been buzzbaits, spooks, and the whopper plopper. The catfish bite seems to pick up more towards the late evenings. There have been many reports of catfish being caught on mealworms and mackerel.
