The fish were scattered and caught on a variety of baits and at depths from 2-to-20 feet. Some anglers did well working top water and spinner baits in the shallows while other worked soft plastics off main lake and secondary points. Anglers fishing the tournament also caught a few good size white bass and walleye. Other white bass were taken by anglers using slab spoons and deep running crank baits in 25-to-35 feet of water. Fishing for catfish was slow-to-fair for anglers fishing at night and using liver and night crawlers.
