The trout truck finally came by this week and dumped some decent sized models.  There were many limits the days following the stocking and has been getting harder to locate the trout with each passing day.  There has been a little swimbait action from the last plant but has been tough for most anglers seeing that the trout were really big and harder for the stripers and largemouth to engulf down.  With that being said, there are still hold-over trout that have survived the initial onslaught but are definitely harder to catch.  The stripers are still biting on sardines, anchovies, and lug worms; mainly deeper water off main points around the lake.  The largemouth and smallmouth bite has been picking up but has been a tough bite to crack for most anglers.  Most catches have been coming on a plastic, either on the drop shot or Carolina-rig.  There have also been some reports of fish being caught on jigs, as well as the good old nightcrawler.  The spawn is coming, and the bass will start to fatten up in preparation.  The catfish bite has slowed down a bit, with a few accidental catches still happening while anglers are soaking bait for stripers.  Anyone willing to switch up baits to mackerel or chicken livers have been having better luck with the cats.  The bluegill and crappie are still hard to find, with your best luck being down at the lagoon.

Mainly using spoons, umbrella rigs, or lead head swimbaits.  A couple anglers have been dropping down an ice jig or spoon where they have been biting bait with some luck, but nothing to brag about.  The largemouth and smallmouth......
