Ed Allens Boats and Bait LLC fishing report – May 25, 2016

Fishing continues to be excellent in spite of the non-stop rains during May. Lake level slightly up and fairly clear. Water temperature in the mid 60’s and rising. Bass continue to be hitting well with best results coming on frogs and senkos. 44 bass over 5lbs have already been recorded in May despite the terrible weather conditions. Pickerel, catfish, and bow fin are also doing well on XL minnows and spinner type lures. Bluegill and shell cracker action is also good with many people reporting limits of the popular pan fish.
