Fishcap Report, Week of August 21 - 28
Indian River Lakes
Big tiger muskies in Hyde and Payne lakes. Use large spinner baits. Both lakes have large populations of crappie and bluegill; tiger muskies introduced to keep them in check.
Bass, walleye, pike in Higley Flow. Use worm rigs with Berkley Gulp. For smallmouth bass, fish the edge of weed beds with minnows.
Frog bite is on for bass. Look for bays close to the main lake with a mix of pads and grass. Hollow body frogs are getting numbers of largemouth. For pike, swim jigs on outside edge of grasslines.
