Future pro Mike Diehl sends us this report from Lake Tom Steed:
Well I finally managed to heal up enough to get out on the water again and it sure felt good. The fishing is picking up again at Lake Tom Steed and should improve quickly with good, steady warm weather. Catfish are biting on worms, bass are slow but will improve quickly, saugeye are post spawn and slow, but the big word today is crappie.
Crappie fishermen are hitting the creek and main lake hard and good numbers are being caught. I got tired of the slow bass bite so I decided to show the crappie fishermen what keepers looked like with two nice ones caught one after the other over 1.5lbs.
Editor’s Note: Thanks for the pictures and report Mike! I’ll bet they were mighty tasty too. Glad to hear you are finally healed up and back on the water. We’ve missed hearing from you!!
