Bass Anglers Reported an Improved Bite at Buena Vista Last Week

Chad Burton and Chris Borden

Report Date:

Bass anglers reported an improved bite at Buena Vista last week. Most anglers continue to find the biting fish near the reeds and cattails, and weightless Senkos, flipped creature baits, or topwater have been the best way to entice a few bites. Crappie anglers reported good fishing again last week, and the pattern has not changed. Trout On and Get Bent Baits have been fooling good numbers of crappie near submerged structure. Some crappie were also reported by anglers using live minnows under a bobber. Redworms and mealworms fished under a bobber provided plenty of bluegill action last week as well. Catfish anglers reported fair fishing using dip bait, chicken liver, and cut baits.
