There were many highs and lows this week for fisherman. Some days were exceptional as for all species being caught and others were down right brutal. Bass are post spawn and little guys are hitting during the morning on top water baits. Crappie are in their spawn it seems and are here one minute and gone the next. Live worms are working good most days for pan fish and cut baits bringing in small catfish at random. Vaca flats is open. Lake hours are 6am-8pm permitting 80 cars and 40 boats per day at a time. Marina is renting boats and open for all other service under limited hours. Closed Tuesday and Wednesday opal all other days from 8am-4:30pm. We are selling fishing license and have plenty of live worms.
