Cowan Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/10 Right now you should be using frogs in the thick moss and lily pads. I have caught quite a few on a Black Spro Bronze eye jr.,Black Ribbits (Awesome Bait) and Jig and Pig in the thick cover. Keeping it simple. Dont work your frogs to fast. Stay in the shady areas and depth has not been a factor. Catching bass in 1 and 2 ft of water in the thick stuff mostly on points and in the coves, stickin to the basics. Fished 6 hours today started at 5:45 this morning and went till noon. Caught my last one at 11:30 when it was sunny and 88 on my temp gauge. These baits are like shovels you just have to dig em out.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Cowan Lake at 53 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is getting ready to ramp up. The male bass will start moving up from deep water toward spawning coves and the big ones are right behind them. This is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. The female bass will start feeding at this water temperature in preparation for spawn. The male bass may be up shallow especially on sunny afternoons. Fishing sunny spawning grounds that are receiving the warm spring time sun is a great way to get a few largemouth bass in the boat.

Cowan Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/2010 Caught a few deep 10 ft min. This lake has no size limit so please use your good judgment before keeping crappie that you might get 1 oz of slab off of. Seen way to many people keeping very small crappie this past spring.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Cowan Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- there isn't any walleye
View Tip Location on Map
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye spawn is in full swing now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Try throwing reaction type baits up in the shallows. Rip-Rap, damns, rocky bottom points are perfect to hit. Try fishing some faster crank baits and spinners this time of year. As always fall back to the standard walleye fishing tactics, but it won?t hurt bringing out the bass gear in search for spawning walleyes. In this water temperature, always be safe on the water.

Cowan Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 55-60 degree weather,shrimp,gold fish and chicken livers are the best.
View Tip Location on Map
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.

Cowan Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. 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. Have a great day!
