Summer has finally made it here and the water temperature is in the lower 90's. The White Bass are good some days and slow the next. We have been catching them on top water when they are good around Elk River and all the islands around the lake. I have been using 2' Go Go Minnows when they are topping.

Crappie fishing has been good using live minnows in 15ft of water around the docks day and night.

The Catfishing is starting to pick up. I have been catching a lot of small catfish in 25ft of water drifting cut shad.

Hey folks!

The whitebass action has been great!! The evening bite has been the best with the whitebass doing a lot of surfacing all over mid lake and around sailboat bridge area! We have really been down sizing our baits to match the size of shad they are busting out in the open! We've been throwing 1/4 rattletraps and 2" Go Go Minnows.

Bowfishing trips are picking up now that the water levels are starting level out some! Water clarity is getting better also! We've been shooting a lot of fish in grass flats and rocky points! We've shot some big buffalo and few big gar the last few trips! It's going to get better and better all summer now!

Bluecat are starting to wind down from spawn now and are moving back out to main lake! Drifting will start picking up with cut bait! This time of year I use 5/0 team catfish double action hooks on Carolina rigs. I'd focus out on 15-25 foot of water right now! Shad are everywhere so getting bait shouldn't be a problem!

The fishing at Grand has had it's ups and downs! The bass can mostly be caught deep on jigs, big worms, 6xds, and 5xds crankbaits. The most productive deep water spots have been main lake points with long slopping points with pea gravel. Most of my fish have came out of 10-15 foot if water. If it's windy defiantly hit points with a deep diving crankbait, they are starting to school a little better with the wind blowing on the points! Good luck and tight lines!

The lake is muddy through the main channel but clearing on the edges. The Big Bass Bash will be held this weekend on Grand Lake.

Fishing has been really good all over the lake. The Whitebass have been topping every where at different times of the day. We just can't get a good pattern on them and have to do lots of moving. When we do find them we have been using 1 oz bendable minnows. Trolling has been working also with a shad rap.

The Crappie has moved into the docks and if you want to catch some Crappie the public docks should be good. I have been catching them day and night on really light jig heads with Crappie Kickers on them. Minnows have also been real good on slip bobber when the bite gets tough.

The Catfishing has been good in 10 to 15 foot of water using cut shad.

Hey folks! Fishing has been great the last few days! The water is dropping fast now and it's getting down to that normal elevation!

We have been running a ton of whitebass trips and doing fantastic! We have been throwing out 1 and 1.5 ounce Bendable Minnows and putting a 3" Crappie Kicker above it and catching two at a time! We have been keying on the north end of the lake and fishing flats and points with wind and shad present on them. We even been catching a ton of channels on the slabs!

Catfish are being caught on cut bait and Sudden Impact fiber bait. They have been on the flats feeding with the current being pulled through the lake from the dam releasing! Catfishing will be getting better and better as the cats start to finish their spawn.

Bowfishing is starting to get better and better now that the water is getting down to normal! We have been killing them on grass flats around the lake here lately! We have a ton of trips lined up and should be a great rest of the summer on Bowfishing!
