DATE: 5-01-03
SURFACE TEMP: 69am - 76 pm
WATER CLARITY: Most places a little dingy but fishable

CRAPPIE: Scattered. Trying to spawn.Catch them around and under docks throwing floats with minnows or jigs at the bank.Shallow
brush.Any visible structure.Our best color of jig is bubble gum.Butch fished Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday.Average keeper day was
32 but we do not keep 9 inch fish.

BASS:They are feeding up fixing to spawn.Spinnerbaits Chartreuse in color.A lot of fish still out on the old river channel.Mouths of
coves, around boat docks and structure.Along with a pig-n-jig we like a Rat'l Trap.Basically they are pretty shallow but reasonably

STRIPE: Some stripes being taken out of the tailwater.Other than that, that is about all I can tell you about stripe.

WHITE BASS: Late in the afternoon have seen some good surfaces just above and below the old iron ferry pole.Couple of a hundred
yards before you get to the dam.In with the white bass there are some spots.

BREAM: Huge numbers of bream being taken on Guntersville.They are shallow and the beds are visible.Some females starting to
show up.Best bait is wax worms.

Thanks, Steve 256-927-6617
