Ken says: The lake level stands at 600.24 as of todays report and is on the way down. Normal summer pool is 599.7 As it stands now we are a little over 1 foot over summer pool. The tail water flow is 242 (cfs) The crappie are still out In 8-12 feet of water so we have been trolling 200- 300 series Bandit crank baits. We look for the shad schools on main lake and the mouth of coves on the depth finder and you can see the crappie and white bass underneath the shad schools. Use line counter reels so you know how much line you have out and run your speed at 1.6 on gps . The learning curve on this technique is short so by midday you should have it down. The large mouth bass should be on main lake points up in the day and shallow early in morning. Buzz bait early in morning will work here. Then when sun gets high in the sky go to black and blue brush hog or 10" red shad worm on a heavy shaky head jig to get through the heavy cover. Heavy rod and line are a must to get these fish out of the cover. Walleye can be caught from first light up feeding on sand flats and rocks and the outside of boat ramps rock. Also they can be caught trolling shad raps on main lake points up in the day. Be safe and watch for other boaters... Tight Lines .
