Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

Belews Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I found a catfish hole at the lat/long listed below. Every time we have hit this spot this summer, we would pull out at least 2-3 white catfish. Rig up a jig with a live worm and let it sit on the floor, jigging the bait every now and then.

If you see a bunch of bluegills hanging out around your boat, add an extra sinker to your line to get the bait out of reach before they steal your worm. They are really aggressive and quick here.

Most of the catfish I have caught here have been 18+ inches long and I've let them all go, so hopefully they'll be bigger next season!

Belews Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
