Fishing Report from TPWD (May 11)

EXCELLENT. Water normal stain; 72 degrees; 1.11 feet low. Crappie are excellent under docks and on brush piles in 6-18 feet of water using jigs and minnows. Largemouth bass are excellent on rocks, docks, and in the shad spawn. As the fish feed up on the schools of shad in the early mornings you can catch them on chatterbaits and topwaters. White and hybrid bass are excellent schooling in the morning on main lake humps around the birds. Catfish are excellent on fresh shad near retaining walls and rocks. Report by Kyle Miers, Lake Country Outfitters.
