Fished Garrison yesterday and started fishing the banks in the front and worked my way to the lilly pads on the front boat launch side with not even a bite.the winds started picking up as I was heading towards the back of the lake when i got to the very back I started catching bass with a green and white spinner bait with a white trailer grub. by the end of the day I had caught at least 7 fish 12 or better one was 4 1/2lbs -2 were over 3 lbs 3 were 1 1/2 lbs and one 12 incher. cold front moved in and the fishing started to shut down. the cove heading towards the back on the left is where I caught 1/2 my fish the rest all the way back in the lilly pads.

- This place is about 4 ft deep almost everywhere except for upclose on the banks.
This place is also FILLED with lilly pads throughout most of the pond. It is
known to either produce nothing, or a 15-16lb sack. I had my luck with suspending
rattle traps on the pad lines. 4 fish for about 11 lbs on july 4 2012, but zeroed
the other time I fished it in late march 2012.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

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.

Garrisons Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. 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. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
