Wallaye are still hitting in the shallows of around 5 to 10 foot, bass have been steady with everything from beatle spins to minnows. Channel cat have been slow so far. Blue Gill are still hitting hard on spinners and worms and Crappie have been extremly slow the last few days with a few being caught over by the docks in the marina. The large amount of rain last week and overcast skies has kept the water temp down below 60.
