Calling Panther Lake: Temperature: 68
Bass fishing is good. Spinnerbaits and topwater lures have been working well this week. Also try watermelon or junebug colored soft plastics in 8 - 12 feet of water
Bream fishing is fair. Redear sunfish, or shellcrackers, are being caught on earthworms and red worms fished on the bottom in about 4 feet of water. Crickets and worms are good bets too, both tightlining and with a cork.
Crappie fishing is good when you find the fish. There have been some big fish caught, and good numbers as well. White jigs have been producing the most bites.
The catfish bite is good. Livers and nightcrawlers fished on bottom have been working well. Several nice catfish have been caught off of the pier on liver. Also, some fish in the 4 - 6 pound range have been caught on nightcrawlers in 2 to 3 feet of water. Try worms, minnows, stinkbait, or whatever your favorite catfish bait happens to be.
