Conditions : Lake Maumelle: Jolly Roger’s Marina said water temperature is 65 to 69 degrees, hitting 68 on Monday, and the lake level is full. Black bass are excellent and biting on crankbaits, wacky rig worms and spinnerbaits. Blacks have moved into the shallow water. Black bass fishing is great right now. On Tuesday, Creighton Sawyer and Tohmath Forrest caught 10.74 pounds of bass to win ths week’s tournament on the lake. Brad Lequieu and Anthony Wright edged Tom Sowell and Mike Broom by .08 pounds for second place, both catching over 9 pounds. Gary Harris and Rudy Westbrook found the Big Bass, at 3.82 pounds. Kentucky bass are also excellent and being caught on jigs. They can be found mixed in with the black bass in the shallow water. White bass results are good. Use Rooster Tails, CC Spoons and deep-diving Bandits and Bombers. They are toward the middle of the lake; watch the loons and the whites will be there in large quantity. Crappie reports have been good. They are being caught on crappie minnows and jigs (chartreuse and white with very light line). There are still crappie bedded up in 4-6 feet of water and about 8 feet off the weeds. Lots of 11- to 15-inch crappie are being caught. Bream are very good. Despite it being past full moon, the bream are still being caught on the beds. Lots of reports of big redear being caught. They are being caught on crickets and live worms. Catfishing is good and they’re being caught in 25 feet of water, but they appear to be moving into shallower water now. Use stink bait, small bream and chicken livers.
