Smallmouth are the dominate species right now on Yamat tubes in perssimmon, chartreuse and light crawfish colors 1/8 oz and 1/4 oz Yamamoto jig weights.  Water is rising fast now and the fish are not always tight to the shoreline, so fish further out from the rocky points to target the full body of water to submerged structures.

Stripers – Some small males will be caught while targeting smallmouth on points but bait fishing is slow with the exceptions to a limited bit for small fish.

Top water action awaits about 4 weeks out for the better stripers.   Weather and wind, and water will dicate always so fishing is always good!
