SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!!
Water temps are in the mid 40's and warming fast!
It's been a long hard winter, but fishing should pick up fast.
The bite is good and improving. Fish are being caught in the buck brush. Some can still be caught in deeper water on brush piles and under bridges. The Gun Creek and the Sailboat harbor bridge are the best right now. This time of year I prefer a red/chartreuse jig or a minnow. I use a minnow when fishing the buck brush and a jig when fishing deeper water.
Kids enjoy the action take them fishing.
The bite is really good in creeks feeding the lake and at the mouth of creeks where they open up into the lake. Recent rains have made the creeks flow and stir things up. Catfish are feeding heavily in the creeks.
Rend lake is a GREAT catfish lake. I would argue the best in the state.
It's a little early for bass on Rend, but a few small ones in about three feet of water are being caught.
