Catfish and stripers have been biting throughout the day

Catfish and stripers have been biting throughout the day around the lake on various cut baits such as anchovies or sardines, lugworms and mackerel with a heavy sinker  and a longer leader to endure the windy conditions and water flow in the lake. Steeper ledges and walls have been great areas to target along with coves around the lake for  both catfish and stripers. Anglers have also been having luck trolling the lake using heavy kastmasters and deeper diving jerkbaits or paddle tail baits with a lead head or bullet weight to get down a bit more. Soft plastics having still been working great for the bass along the grasslines throughout the lake like flukes and senkos or roboworms. Weedless setups have been the most effective with the remaining grass during this time of the year.
