loose aggregates in creeks and on flats in the main lake and were hitting
live minnows, small swim baits, and small jigs. Bluegill and shellcracker

main lake, usually offshore of traditional spawning areas, and were hitting
small jigs, Nikko nymphs, small swim baits, and live worms. Some bass were
on flats, along drop-offs, or in channels in the major creeks and the main
lake, while other bass were on shorelines. Pickerel were in creeks or on
shorelines or around wood cover or vegetation. When active, bass and
pickerel were hitting live minnows, spinnerbaits, swim baits, stick worms,
