Lake Lou Yaeger Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Lake Lou Yaeger Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Channel Catfish and Blue Catfish (if they exist in the lake) are actively
feeding in the shallow coves on dead shad especially during warm sunny days. Try
using shad guts and smelly dough baits. If you do not like the smelly baits,
night crawler worms will work too, because the spring rains often wash them into
the lake and catfish are feeding on them too. On cold days, the fish sometimes
retreat to deeper water. Flathead Catfish are just starting to wake up too. Some
of the biggest fish can be caught on live Bluegills in shallow coves at night
especially in coves close to their deep water wintering holes. Spring rains
means flowing water and catfish take full advantage of this during this time of
the year. Look for catfish to stack up at the mouth of the creeks as they flow
into the lake. The water from the shallow creeks tends to be warmer and also the
flowing water brings food from the creeks to the catfish. Try night crawler or
fresh cut shad or Bluegill for bait for best results. Try fishing both on the
bottom and with floats for fast action.
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.

Lake Lou Yaeger Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
