SURFACE TEMP: 64 in AM - 67 PM
LAKE LEVEL: Right at full

CRAPPIE: Crappie have gone shallow. 2 foot deep. Should be able to locate them throwing to the bank. Back end of coves and
creeks. They are trying to spawn.Any structure that you can see will hold fish. Float and a minnow will work.Float and a jig will work.
Harry fished Neely Henry today and had 39 pretty good fish, all shallow.

BASS: Throwing a crankbait on the old river channel edges and drops.Humming a Rat'l Trap on shallow points,flats and humps. They
are just like the crappie, they are feeding up to spawn.

BREAM: Bream on Neely Henry are small. Same thing at Weiss. Guntersville holds some good bream and a lot of them. Most any
creek or cove you will find good'uns. and in large numbers.I fished there today. Fishing about 1 foot deep, throwing a float at the bank.
We had 200 in a little over 4 hours. All filletable along with several big shellcrackers.2 problems with Guntersville. You have to take
your bait with you before you go and there are no fish cleaning stations.Great time to take the kids and keep them busy. Teach your
kids how to hunt and fish and you will not have to hunt your kids.

Thanks, Steve 256-927-6617
