temperatures were in the upper 40’s in the lower main lake and lower in the
major creeks and the upper end of the lake on Wednesday (11/27/2019). The

brown and very slightly cloudy in the central lake, with some cloudy water
along downwind shorelines.

channel edges or in channels, frequently near wood cover. Active crappie in
the upper lake were hitting live minnows, Wright Bait Co. and Southern Pro

Yellow and white perch were scattered or in loose aggregates on deep flats,
drop-offs, and channels in the main lake and when active, both species were
hitting small live minnows, swim baits, and jigs. Most bluegill and
shellcracker had moved into channels. When active, bluegill and
shellcracker were hitting live worms and crickets, Nikko nymphs, flies, and
small swimbaits. Pickerel and bass were located along shorelines, around
cypress trees, on flats, and on channel edges and in channels. When active,
bass and pickerel were hitting live minnows, top waters, spinnerbaits, swim
baits, stick worms, crank baits, jerk baits, and jigs.
