Bass: Shad are starting to school and a transition has begun. PopRs, Spooks and Buzzbaits are what you need to catch them. Don’t forget to throw the river bars with a Swimbait.
Crappie: They are moving more to the shallows so get the grub fired up and start searching. Night fishing with a light is still best, and you can beat the heat.
Bluegill: Bluffs are still good, but if you find some deep grass, you can catch some big ones on a live worm or small minnows.
