Cats are good on live, stinks, and punch baits. Crappie are good on minnows, jigs, small crankbaits, other artificials should work well. White bass are good on minnows, crankbaits and topwater lures. Trout are slow, so good luck out there. Walleye are fair on minnows, crawlers, crankbaits, grubs, and other artificials. The Shad have spawned, so try smaller presentations that mimic the shad size.
