What’s biting this week?

January 10, 2014 

• Catfish: Fair to good. Try drifting cut white perch or cut shad on the bottom in or near the main channel.

• Largemouth Bass: Slow to fair. Up and down air temperatures have kept a strong winter bite from turning on, and for now the fishing is still pretty tough. Schools of bait are getting bigger and tighter, but fish are not yet ganged up with them. Fish can still be caught on Rattle Trap-type baits, square billed crankbaits, and even Alabama rigs. The grub bite should get good once water temperatures drop on, and as shad begin to die off when water temperatures hit about 50 degrees the jerkbait bite will get better and better.
