Calling Panther Lake: Water Temperature: 92
Bass fishing is fair. Three fish over 7 pounds have been caught recently. Big worms in watermelon or pumpkinseed have been good baits lately. Soft plastics such as baby brush hogs fished 8'-12' deep have also been a good bet.
Bream fishing is fair. Some nice redear were caught over the weekend on worms fished in water 8'-10' deep. A lot of smaller fish are being caught, with some big Redear occasionally. Earthworms fished on the bottom are working well.
Catfishing has slowed some; the best report was from an angler fishing off the pier at night. Some fish in the 4-6 pound range are being caught. Fresh shrimp or nightcrawlers fished on the bottom are working well, or try tightlining with your standard catfish baits (livers, worms, or commercially available catfish bait).
Crappie fishing is slow. Not a lot of numbers, but the ones being caught are big. Two anglers caught 14 fish in the 2 pound range recently. Minnows fished about 12' deep are working as well as anything.
