Sam Williams — The water is dropping and the shallows are warming up as the sun rises. The rains have left the main river a little muddy but the creeks are clear. The shallow bite is still on but slow. Blade baits are the answer this week. Plenty of Jacks are hitting the spinner and chatter baits. They are a great tasting fish fried up with some grits. The red shad worm is still the better color worked really slow on a Texas rig. The deeper fish are hitting Carolina rigs, deep cranks and heavy jigs. June bug worms and chunks are the color for the deep cover fish.

Crappie are deep on trash piles and cover. Jig-tipped minnows are getting some nice slabs.

Catfish and bream have slowed with the rain and fronts.

We still need volunteers and business support for Scott Woodruff and his journey for his heart transplant. You can contact Capt. Sam Williams at 334-355-5057 for information about the National Transplant Foundation and how you can help our local hero.

God bless and good fishin’
