Love the lake, but don\'t have a boat. Anyone know where to fish off shore or a pier. We\'re new to the area. Thanks, my eight-year-old wants to catch a fish so bad he can\'t stand it. I know they\'re out there, just not sure how to get to them without a boat. Thanks.

Lake Maxinkuckee Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Wife and I trolling Rapala minnows in 4 and 9 foot depths over and through the weeds. Caught Bass, Walleye, Redear, and Smallmouth. Nearly filled the sack this morning. 7-6-2011
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 65 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Lake Maxinkuckee Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!

Lake Maxinkuckee Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Walleye hit well off of steep drop offs. There is a weed bed or some kind of sand
bar in middle of north end where it gets pretty shallow fast. Trolled over
shallow and swam lure into the deeper drop off and got 4 walleye during AM hours.
Used small musky killer spinning baits with medium sized spoon.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.
Lake Maxinkuckee Catfish Rating:
3
Lake Maxinkuckee Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

- The best time to catch White Bass is when the water is between 40-60 degrees and they like to be in constantly moving water but I have also caught some on calm water also.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
