Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov
Jim N.: I fished Lake Pleasant on Monday and caught three striped bass on KVD sexy-shad swimbaits (below) in Humbug at 6:30 a.m. with one fish on Zara Spook Jr to ( call one up) to know they were there first.
One female crappie ready to spawn was caught on crappie minnows at 15 feet. Then went largemouth bass, fishing in shallow brush. One bass on black Carolina-rigged straight-tail Powerworm, one bass on green 4″ Senko dead-sticking in tree stumps, then it started to rain and it was over.
Went to Bartlett next and got 5 largemouth bass, one on a crawfish Wiggle Wart crankbait next to ramp, another bass on Carolina-rigged Roboworm on baby bass with hot tip. Two more bass on Berkley Power Craw on 1/4-oz weedless shaky-head rig
