Off the Hook

Even with the weather conditions, reports of good catches are coming in to both Ingrams and Whippoorwill marinas. Memorial Day weekend saw the local campgrounds filled with folks ready to "wet a hook."

On May 18, Buddy Hosey took a five-bass limit weighing 15 pounds. Gerald Biddle from Crawfordville weighed in a lunker at 10.27 pounds.

Nice catches of bream and catfish are being caught from the docks at both marinas.

Also on the 18th, Raymond Hatcher and Clint Hall from Sneads took 50-plus bluegills using crickets. On May 21, a couple from Georgia had 60 nice bluegills, also using crickets.

Bream fishing continues to be strong however, windy conditions have limited the areas where you can fish.

Crappie have moved to deeper water (15 to 18 feet) and are being taken with jigs and minnows.

The lake is in great shape! Level is normal and water temperature is holding around 70 degrees, so come on down.

Until next week, tight lines and good fishing.
