Lake Mead Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Lake Mead Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- As the water warms up I see alot of fishermen losing their bait from the smallest strikes.Try threading your baits with an anchovie needle.Took me years to figure it out but an old timer showed me how and I catch alot more fish,because the bait tends to stay on when it's hot outside.So I spend a lot more time fishing than
baiting my hook!Only one place in vegas that Ive found that carries them LAKE MEAD BAIT AND TACKLE SHOP if your local and you fish you'll know where it's at!!!!!!
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.

Lake Mead Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Striped fishing has picked up. Head to the lake if you have been anxious to see those boils. The
mouth of boulder harbor has been successful with morning and late evening boils. Fish anything
that mimics a shad or any white topwater lure. The shad however, have been small but have been
showing up in abundant little schools throughout the shallows and coves. Watch for signs of
breaking water surface and diving birds.
Callville bay has been good as well. With boils here and there, you just need to look out to find
them or have the patience and they will show themselves to you.

Lake Mead Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
