I caught a 12 1/2 lb channel and a 27 1/2 lb Flathead out of cotile last week. I have lived here all my life and i wont fish any other lake even though Cotile is a pain in the tail. I just wish people would STAY OFF MY TROT LINES.....

"Went out last weekend and caught a few mud-cat,then caught a couple of nice channels(12 & 2 lbs.) this lake is an excellent catfishing lake and the pressure is low,being that most anglers seem to go after bass. On this lake when they are turned on you can catch them about everywhere,I caught mine in 6 ft. of water using shrimp,crawlers and chicken liver.On that particular evening they were hitting the liver,although I prefer Turkey liver because it is stronger and bloodier.Good luck, the ""FISHIN' MAGICIAN"""

76 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Cotile Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Spotted bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

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.
