Calling Panther Lake: Water Temperature: 88
Some schooling activity is being seen. Top water fished early or late in the day has been successful. Soft plastics fished 8'-12' deep have been a good bet. Junebug lizards have also been productive. Also, pumpkinseed and watermelon colors work well.
Bream fishing is fair. 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. Two anglers caught six fish weighing 28.5 pounds recently. 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, but the ones being caught are big. Minnows fished about 12' deep are working as well as anything. White beetle spins and jigs have also been working well.
