The bite is on! I've heard of some folks catching redears, but I don't know where, how well, or how many. I braved the rain yesterday evening, and by the time I got my first cricket on the hook it let up. I motored up to some lilly pads in 3-4' of water and caught bream almost every time I had at least part of a cricket left on the hook. It sprinkled a few times, and it seemed like when it would start sprinkling they would tear it up. I lost several that wrapped around lilly pads, but kept 29 - a few small ones, but most were pretty good size. Not bad for about 90 minutes of fishing!
