The spotted bass, perch and catfish bite has been excellent, especially in the recent hot weather. Half day trips are producing up to 300 perch along with limits of spotted bass and largemouth to 4 lbs. plus flathead and blue catfish in the 5-10 lb. range. Larger cats and a striper or two are added bonuses. Main channel points and adjacent long coves, and the mouths of major southern creeks are most productive. This summer pattern should continue into early September.
