John Galbearth of Bass Tackle Masters reported on Tuesday, July 1 that for stripers the evening boils are the ticket. From 4 p.m. to sundown, troll of cast Super Spooks, pencil poppers or anything that runs shallow or on the surface. Locating bird activity can help spot the boils.
For bass, most areas are weeded in, so go with weedless lures such as frogs or buzz baits.
Redear sunfish are in deeper waters now -- nightcrawlers still are the best bait.
The morning has been producing the only bite for smallmouth bass. Try top-water plugs first thing in the morning. Smallies are moving deep as the sunrises.
