The spring bite is on at Norman! The full moon in April has all of our gamefish species going strong. My anglers have been catching very nice mixed bags of stripers, bass, catfish, crappie, and perch. Water temperatures are in the upper 60F's to low 70F's, and we're catching most of our fish in relatively shallow water. Long points, primary and secondary, towards the back of major creeks are prime spots to look for fish. Depending on the time of day and light conditions, fish your live baits near the surface down to 3o ft deep. Herring, gizzard shad, and bream are most effective.
