We yesterday and was casting jigs looking for crappie that have moved up. Fishing was a little slow. The fish were pretty spread out. We did manage to catch about 45 and kept 36. The keepers averaged about 10 inches.

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):
At 58 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

- There are no smallmouth in cowan lake.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The smallmouth bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again. Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

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):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

- there isn't any walleye
View Tip Location on Map
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

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

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:

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!
