|Species||Rating||Size||Baits, Method, Location|
|Largemouth bass||Try jig & pig combination or plastic baits rigged Texas-rig style following daily warm-up.|
|Walleye||Try jigs tipped with worms, minnows or leaches or small minnow type crank baits as the bottom presentation. You can also try slab spoons.|
|Crappie||Fish around any brush or vegetation you can find as well as drop-offs. Minnows or jigs are the best baits.|
|Channel catfish||Try prepared stinkbait, cut bait or liver under a bobber or on the bottom. They tend to feed on the wind blown side of the lake. Cooling fall temps have catfish more active.|
