The largemouth and white bass bite was good. The white bass were caught on jerkbaits and the largemouth were caught on trick worms and crawdads. Went up river and to deep laydowns, but couldn't find any smallmouth.

I don't know where this web-site gets it's information regarding walleyes in lake adjer as i have fished that lake and talked with the locals, and have yet to get any possitive response to walleyes being in that lake. Most people in that area think that muskillunge and walleye are the same fish, and there are muskies in that lake, Please get your facts straight before others waste thier time looking for them.

"Gotta say, they were pretty close on the water temperature here. Bass were active, couldn't get on any crappie though. Saw a dude pull out a 38 1/2"" muskie. Beautiful fish!! Rained all day long, good thing for Frogg Toggs....."
Lake Adger Largemouth Bass Rating:
Lake Adger Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- On Friday, 8/17/12, the water was down about 2 feet. This made fishing difficult and the only thing I got a bite on was a crankbait, cranking it very slow. It would be helpful if there was some posting of the water level if that is possible.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Adger at 45 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.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 45 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.
Lake Adger Crappie Rating:
Lake Adger Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will just be starting their migrating runs from deep river channels toward major tributaries. They will suspend in open water and channels in deep water and cover on the break lines. Crappie will stage off primary and secondary points this time of year while they are getting ready for spawn. Make sure you don?t forget the river channels, especially with structure and sharp breaks in deep water. Some crappy will hang back in this area waiting to come up to the staging areas. Drifting and slow (REALLY SLOW) trolling with jigs and other artificials work great this time of year. Always look for baitfish schools and concentrate more time when you see the bait.

Lake Adger 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.

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.
