Conditions : Sardis Lake: The water is falling fairly quickly. Best luck for crappie has been fishing crankbaits 10 – 16 ft deep in the main lake or major creek mouths toward the dam. A lot of short fish are being reported; use bigger baits and fish deeper to discourage smaller fish. Pinch down the barbs on crankbait hooks to make releasing short fish faster and less damaging; it does no good to release dead fish. Quite a few blue catfish and white bass have been hitting crankbaits meant for crappie. Catfishing on lines or rod-and-reel has been picking up as fish start feeding after they’re done spawning. White bass are in the main lake feeding on shad; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits over sandy points. There is no size or number limit on white bass. For largemouth bass, fish spinnerbaits or topwaters in shallower water over flooded cover early and late in the day and crankbaits or soft plastics in deeper water on channel edges or main lake points midday; look for clearer water.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else. These are actually colonial animals (like coral) that filter plankton out of the water. Nibbling by fish results in a rounded colony. Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

The spillway had two gates open 5.0 ft each (2600 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck down here has been has been for small blue catfish on nightcrawlers or cut shad. Some largemouth and spotted bass can be taken fishing spinnerbaits or crankbaits near the rocks.
