Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Arkabutla Lake at 52 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.

- Sadly, there are NO Smallmouth in Arkabutla Lake. It is the wrong type of habitat. Not cool enough and not rocky enough.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 52 degree water. Crappie will be nicely bunched up still and moving more aggresively than when the water temperature is in the 35 to 50 degree range. With baitfish getting more active, the crappie fishing will be good. Good luck today!

Arkabutla Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Arkabutla Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If you thing white bass fishing is hard to you and if you are having hard times finding the white bass
in the lake than go to the spillway in artlabutla or the outlet channel.I have fished there at times and
catch like 10 sometimes around 20!What you need to use on the spillway is little stick bait that
represents a blue squid and a yellow squid that is what you need to use.I forgot the name which I am
very sorry but what you are looking for white bass fishing is a little stick bait that look like yellow or
blue squid.I am really sorry if you didn't catch fish on it but I do know I used it caught a ton of them in
the spillway.

- I don't know if they are striped bass in artlabutla but I do know what to use.You need to use
crankbaits like spoons and rapala lures they are more than likely if they are in artlabutla going to be
swimmming in the middle or the deep part of artlabutla.

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.
