Mark Twain Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Mark Twain Lake at 43 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Mark Twain Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Often, the fish aren't aggressive, but you'll catch more fish if YOU are aggressive. If you don't get a bite in one spot for ten minutes or so, pack up and move. You won't find 'em if you stay in an unsuccessful spot. Minnows are easily the bait of choice although jigs tend to yield larger fish. We generally tie up to trees/limbs/stumps on the edges of treelines - the closer to the points you can get - the better. Early in the year, fish five feet down. During the summer months, start at ten-ish feet deep and work your way up.

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.

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.
