Hot Bites: Very light fishing pressure at all the lakes on the Central Coast, but the bass bite is surging as the fish move shallow for the spawn. Margarita is full and spilling, and the bass have been particularly good. Also a decent crappie bite building. Lopez is at 60 percent of capacity and rising daily and the bass bite is very good here, too. San Antonio is now 52 percent of capacity, while Nacimiento is at 85 percent (down from 90 percent three weeks ago). San Antonio may reopen soon.
