"crappies are starting to hit, water clearity is not good though. the fish are getting ready to spawn, but i don't think it is really on strong yet. If the temp climbs another 3 degrees and the clearity of the water gets better i think it will turn on like a switch. fish are being caught all through the lake right now north to south. the south end of the lake is less murky and has more visibility."

- Bass pro teaser tube Texas rigged bounce it along the stumps/trees in the water to get the largemouth
agitate.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
68 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

- try using a 2 inch white spinner tail jig with a white jig head i have caught hundreds of crappies with these.

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.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

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.
