With summer upon us and the waters warming, stripers are hanging in the deeper water during the day and moving into the shallows at night to feed. Just after sunset and just before sunrise are peak times to get your line in the water. Various swimbaits have attracted the striped bass as well as cut baits and gizzard shad if you can find them. One lucky angler reportedly reeled in a 16-pound catfish near Echo Bay over the weekend. The current lake record is a 19-pound 15-ounce cat taken in 1996. With fluctuating water levels, use extra caution and watch for emerging land masses. Conditions will change week to week.
