Tips/Tactics:

Bass fishing is good year-round, with the biggest usually caught from February through April when they are near the bank. Bluegill and redear sunfish are caught by bank and boat anglers from late spring through summer. Catfish are caught year-round, but the summer and late fall months are best.
