Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie should be very aggressive and feeding well. Feeding should be very heavy right now especially in the morning and evenings and Spawn Should be really fueled up with some fish on their beds currently and actively doing their business. Focus fishing in the upper half and ends of the tributary arms. Best thing this time of year is to fish a little faster with throwing cranking jigs and small crappie crank baits utilizing and fishing different depths until you find a good concentration of fish. Start at the mouths of the arms and work your way back to the shallow spawning areas and fish hard and fast until you find them. Try finding some shallow ditches coming off the channels and heading to shallow spawning areas. On Sunny or warmer days hit those shallow areas hard. NOW IS THE TIME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS ON!!

- use sliding bobber to fish on bottom about 20 ft. out from island towards boat launch using big hunks of mackeral. Wait for bobber to diaappear then count to five, then set hook. Have caught between four of us up to 30 nice cats. Ranging from 5-17lbs. One of my brothers caught one that was 23.5 lbs from the bank. But this was back in the mid ninetys, so I really do not know if this has changed.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

- Trout fishing in Lake Cunningham can be a little difficult. Mainly you can catch
them in early spring near the island by the boat docks.I would suggest either
Powerbait or nightcrawlers.Usually they will be around 2-8 pounds.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
