Conditions : Lake Maumelle: WestRock Landing in Roland (501-658-5598) said they have been receiving great reports on crappie this week. More on that in this report. Also, note that Maumelle will be host to the Arkansas High School Bassers' Tournament, with 80-100 boats on the lake, on Saturday. And the Lake Maumelle Tuesday Night Bass Tournament season is back up and running, contact WestRock Landing for more information on how to compete in the series. This past Tuesday night, 17 out of 21 boats landed five fish each. Lee Brizzolari and Wes Lowder hauled in 14.33 pounds worth of bass to win, while Jeremy Cole and Aaron Cole hooked a big bass of 4.37 pounds. Water temperature is running 58-61 degrees at Lake Maumelle. The largemouth bass bite is good. Some can be found in the grass on the shoreline and around the grass in 8-12 feet biting a variety of lures. Try using jigs, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and swimbaits. The Kentucky/spotted bass bite is fair. Some reports have them being found shallow or near drop-offs and rocky banks. Try using jigs. White bass are fair. Reports of the white bass being shallow by the west bridge and moving back out. Try using swimbaits, Rat-L-Traps and minnows. The great bite from the crappie is coming in about 2-4 feet of water as the males are shallow on the beds. Other anglers are saying that female crappie can be found moving in at 8-10 feet. Try using jigs and minnows. Bream are good. Some are reporting finding them in 24-26 feet, while others say 26-28 feet off the bottom. Use crickets or worms. Also, reports have come in of redear being mixed in with the crappie in shallow water and biting jigs. Catfishing is slow, with no reports coming in this week. But see if they'll take chicken liver, worms or crawfish.
