Conditions : Lake Maumelle: Vince Miller from Fish ’N’ Stuff (501-834-5733) said the water has a light stain to it and is at a normal level and current. Bream are in 3 feet of water and the bite is good. Use redworms and crickets. Crappie are fair. Bass are good. You’ll find the best bite around rock points and jetties. Use crankbaits, buzzbaits and shaky heads. Catfish reports were poor.

Jolly Rogers Marina (501-868-5558) said black bass are slow. Black bass are biting on jigs, crankbaits, wacky rig worms, spinnerbaits and Sweet Beaver. Blacks are about 10-15 feet off the weeds by about 10 feet. Biting around shallow water during dusk time and dawn. Matt Hedrick and Brandon Crain were able to find a 4.08-pound “Big Bass” in Tuesday night’s tournament, won by the 9.58 pounds caught by Josh Baker and Josh Jeffers. Rod Martinez and Marvin Lewis caught 10.9 pounds of bass to win last Friday’s tournament, and Keeton Blaylock caught a “Big Bass” of 4.22 pounds. Kentucky bass bite is also slow. Kentucky bass are being caught on jigs and minnows, and can be found mixed with the black bass in the shallow water. White bass are excellent. They are schooling at east end and some are midwest. They are coming up for a short period of time and moving quickly with the schools. Use Rooster tails, CC Spoons, deep-diving Bandits and Bombers. Crappie are good. They are being caught on crappie minnows and jigs (chartreuse and white with very light line). Lots of 11- to-15 inch crappie are being caught in 22-25 feet of water. Fish off channel or under water bridges. Bream are excellent and can be found on the brush piles but moving quickly. Lots of reports about redear on west end of lake. They are being caught on crickets and live worms. Catfish are excellent. The catfish are being caught in 15-25 feet of water with some moving into shallower water. Use stink bait, small bream and chicken livers.
