Water Temp 47
Water Clarity: Little dirty but clearing 2 foot visibility
Crappie: The Black Crappie action has been good for the past couple of weeks. Fish shallow flats and extended underwater points with some wood on them or black chunk rock. Especially good in the afternoon on a sunny day. I’ve been making limit catches casting a 1/16oz green curly tail.
Spider riggers are catching good numbers fishing 10ft deep on creek channel edges.
Bass: The bass are starting to show up on black chunk rock points. Casting crank baits to shore on the main lake or on secondary points can produce a real hawg this time of year. Fishing a 5 inch green curly tail grub on a 1/4oz jig head is also a good choice. I’d fish the crank bait in 1 to 10 ft of water and the jig on down to 18 ft.
One of the most important things to catching fish this time of year is to understand that the fish are looking for warmer water. It is typical to fish all day with mediocre success only to find that between 2 and 4 PM on a sunny day, you’ll catch more fish than you did all day!
