Conditions : LAKE HAVASU: John Galbreath from Bass Tackle Masters said shad are not yet spawning, and so since they aren't congregated in th ebacks of coves, the striper bite is tough now.

Still, on Feb. 25, this 44-inch, 36-pound striper was caught Wednesday afternoon on an anchovy. This man said he hadn't caught a striper all winter

On the whole, striper fishing is tough at Havasu since shad have not yet spawned. Surface water temperature at Havasu on Friday was 60 degrees.

Smallmouth bass are spawning, and largemouth bass are in pre-spawn mode. There is no top-water bite; most anglers are catching bass on dropshots and jigs on beds, and crankbaits in shad or red craw patterns for pre-spawn largemouth in 8-15 feet of water.

Reder sunfish are deep.

The catfish bite has been good all winter -- some are chasing shad along with bass. Galrbeath said many 15-20-pound catfish (channels and flatheads) have hit jigs and even crankbaits wherever there's baitfish.

This flathead catfish was taken Feb. 22 from the Black Meadow area. It weighed 59.8 pounds. See one of our videos that has some flathead-catching tips.

Some pre-spawning activity was reported last week.
