The fish appeared to be scattered at different depths. A few black bass were taken on worms, spinner baits and top water lures fished in the shallows while others were taken off points by anglers using drop shot and split shot rigs. It was the same with walleye and white bass. Some anglers reported catching walleye at 30-to-50 feet with spoons and reef runners while others were taken on jointed Rapalas in 9-to-12 feet of water. Most of the white bass caught were taken by anglers fishing for walleye.
