Black bass are slow in 1-5 feet of water early morning using chartreuse/white spinners, then moving to 3-15 feet of water using crankbaits. Sunfish are good in 12-20 feet of water on brush piles. Hitting earthworms and pieces of cut shad or cut minnows with 2-4 pound line. Catfish are good in 2-14 feet of water early in the morning when the shad are running the banks and spawning. Cut bait under a cork or stink bait is producing eaters. Bigger trophy fish are up in the timber in 3-10 feet of water using cut carp and shad. White bass are good running the banks early in the morning, 1-4 feet deep, when the shad are spawning. Small rooster tails ⅛ ounce, or 3-4 inch swim baits are working shallow. Then move out to 10-15 feet on main lake points to find them with one ounce slabs. Make a lot of noise, they will come to your boat. If you have a thumper that will keep them under the boat.
