"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"""

Cotile Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- bass are still holding in 8 to 10 foot
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 88 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Cotile Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- crappie are being caught in front of the rec by the long pier
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.

- Stay deep with a carolina rig and be ready for a fight. use inch to inch and a half brem for bait and live hook them (through the back right below top fin. let your weight sit on bottom and the brem swims freely. caught a 27 1/2 lb flathead last week

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Catfish will be more active than most other species in the lake. However they will be feeding much slower due to the lake having less oxygen and less healthy than when the water temperature is a little cooler. Donít throw in the towel, your monster catfish may be waiting for you. As always the best time to go fishing is every time you can go fishing. Good luck!

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new 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.
