The fishing has improved quite a bit. In the last couple weeks we have been catching very low numbers of fish (2 or 3 a day at best when we could go). Me and some buddies took a chance and took of work to fish a few days this thur. thru sat. I got down early and tried some pulling in swamp creek on wed afternoon and caught 6 keepers in about an hour and a half. On Thurs, the wind was the story, but some fish were biting. My buddies in their boat caught about 10 nice fish and me and my dad caught 13 keepers. We caught most of ours pulling hot grubs(John Deere) back in swamp creek. My buddies caught theirs mainly drifting some minnows in swamp creek. Friday started and finished good, but was slow in the middle. We had three boats on friday. In my boat we had 13 keepers by 10 oclock pulling in swamp creek. The other two boats were slow trolling minnows. One boat had 10 and the other had 15 by 10 oclock. Then the wind came and shut us down until around 5 oclock. Then it heated up, my boat ended up with 21, the other two ended up with 41 and 18. This was finally what we had been looking for. We caught all of these pulling in the evening when the wind died down out by the island south of the power lines. Sat. our three boats only caught 20 but we left by 10 when the wind picked up. All of these were slow trolling minnows in swamp creek and out by the island. All in all the fish bite was better, but the wind really was trouble unless you were out early and late. The middle of the day was tough.

When crappiei are not relating to the bottom of the lake. The fish are staging in the middle zone of water. This happens frequently in summer, when fish get inactive.
