Hot Bites: Still relatively light fishing pressure at all the lakes on the Central Coast, but the bass bite is fair to good with most fish post-spawn now. Margarita is full, and the bass have been fair on plastics and reaction baits, but a lot of the bass are in a post spawn funk. Still decent crappie and bluegill bites. Lopez has a good bass bite, with panfish action improving by the day. San Antonioís south shore is open for weekends-only. The South Shore park and ramps will open this Friday, May 19, with a full reopening, including the north shore ramps tentatively set for June 9. No fishing report information. At Nacimiento, the spotted bass action is good, with a lot of fish on plastics and reaction baits in less than 20 feet of water.
