We have been seeing the smallmouth bass bite pick up in the last few days. A few caught around the Jerome rd rapids, some near the 475 bridge in sidcut park and those that waded over to Bluegrass island hit a few as well. Throw a spinnerbait tipped with a small piece of worm to juice it up a bit.
We have seen the catfish bite remaining steady, Orleans ad White street have both been productive catsfish spot. Sorry but we are out of shad for bait right now, they have been uncharacteristically hard to catch. Try some big juicy worms, those seem to have been doing the trick .
Trolling bite still going on SE of Kelleys, dumping ground off Cedar Point and NE of Kelleys. You can pull spoons, Bandits or Worm Harnesses. Speeds varying 2.0-2.7. Perch fishing has been fair at best. You will catch a handful while walleye fishing. Those targeting perch are finding some between Kelleys and South Bass but they don’t seem to be real schooled up yet. But size of the perch has been good.
