Species Rating Size Baits, Method & Location
Largemouth bass Fair 1-5 lbs. Reaction style baits are usually the best in cold water try lipless cranks, big swimbaits, or vibrating jigs. The fish will become more aggressive as the water warms into the upper 40s and into the 50s.
channel catfish Fair 1/2-15 lbs Chicken liver, cut bait, or other prepared baits lakewide.
Walleye Fair 10-24" Crankbaits around rocky habitat may produce a few as they should be moving up to spawn.
crappie Fair-Good up to 14" Using jigs of various colors around dropoffs or the Georgia Cubes has been producing some nice fish.
