Fall is just around the corner and the fish is starting to move around a lot. The White Bass will be getting on the main lake points where the wind is coming in.
I would throw an 1/8oz Go Go Minnow pearl or chartreuse and another good bait would be a rooster tail.
Catfishing is starting to get in the fall pattern some days you can catch them drifting in 20 to 40ft of water using cut shad.
Crappie fishing should be good in and around the docks on sunny days. Cloudy days the Crappie will move out from the docks and you are liable to catch them anywhere.

Hello everyone! It looks like Fall is bringing us some cooler weather this upcoming weekend! This time of gets me excited to be on the water. The blue catfish bite just keeps getting better and better as our water temperatures drop. The fish have been moving around quite a bit the past month or so, changing locations and depths sometimes daily.
We've been dragging baits under shad schools where we see arches(feeding catfish) beneath the shad at .5-.9 mph. Several days we'd start a long drift in 8ft of water and catch fish all the way out to water in the 60ft range. This past weekend, the fish were feeding best shallower in 6-20ft. The big fish are still scattered and hiding, but we've been filling the coolers with good eating sized catfish. We've been using a variety of rigs and all have been productive, (Santee Rig, 3-Way, and modified 3-Way) with snaggless sinkers and Team Catfish Double Action Hooks. For smaller bait we use 5/0 and larger baits up your hook size to 8/0. We like this hook for its strength, sharpness and the ability to set a hook in fish unlike with a traditional circle hook. It's about all we use these days for catfish.
We've been so busy with catfish trips we haven't had much time to chase white bass, but did sneak away for about 45 minutes in between trips on Sunday to check out a couple of rock piles. We caught a dozen or so nice whites on a slab and fly combo. Sure was nice to use the light action rods and feel that that thump! We were using chartreuse and white for both the slab and fly. The High Standard rods from Fle-Fly and 20 pound braid did the trick.
Our water temps are in the low to mid 80's and as the water temp drops look for our white bass to move shallow on shallow windblown points. We'll switch our slabs out for the GoGo Minnow when this transition happens. Usually, using the 2 inch pearl, chartreuse, or firecracker colors on a 1/8th or 1/4 ounce jig head.
Spoonbill Paddlefish season is just around the corner! When we get a couple of our good cold fronts around Thanksgiving, the spoonbill and baitfish will suck down on into the creeks and river channels making them much easier to target. December through May is the time for spoonbill on Grand and surrounding lakes.
