LAKE HAVASU: Sept. 9 report from John Galbraith of BassTackleMaster.com in Lake Havasu City:
Lake Level 449.06
Striped bass action is good with boils of stripers chasing shad in the morning and late afternoon hours.
Trolling Super Spooks, Sassy Shads and Rat-L-Traps in white or chrome/blue are working best.
Black Rock cove north to the entrance to the river has been the best place to search for the "boils".
Channel catfish bite is excellent with numerous cats being caught on cut markerel and squid off deeper points and coves in 15 to 35 feet of water.
Smallmouth bass are biting well on Hula grubs in smoke sparkle or green pumpkin, rigged on 3/8-ounce football jigs fished around rocky points and gravel shorelines in 6 to 15 feet of water.
Top-water poppers, Lucky Craft Sammys and buzzbaits also working well for smallmouth and largemouth over gravel flats and submerged weedbeds in the morning and late afternoon hours.
