Bass are off the bank, fish worms on the humps and points. Hold your mouth just right and you might catch a big one! Good Luck! P.S. try topwater in the A.M.

Have to agree with Dmuntean… the bass bite does seem to have slowed. I don’t know if it is the weather or a summer pattern that is setting up.
Catfish seem to be rather spunky. Today I pulled in two of them on crankbaits.

Talking about Nimi… what happened to the weed beds in the middle of the lake? This time last year they were in full bloom, on top of the water and you couldn’t burn thru them with the trolling motor without getting stuck. Those mid-lake weeds seem to be non-existent.

Hey Old School. I know they treated the water for weeds about a month ago. That is the reason for th lack of them. I guess for fishing it can be good and bad. They also treated Portage.... C-ya out there!!!!

I've been having some success wading the shorelines and hitting the abundant lily pad areas...last Friday I had 2 or 3 hookups on bass that went over 4 lb. only to lose them when they were within arms-length. Most of my success has come on a purple 7" worm on a weedless hook and little/no weight attached. Hope this helps!
