Indian Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Indian Lake at 40 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 fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 40 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.

Indian Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Berkley crappie power bait
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.
Indian Lake Walleye Rating:
3.5
Indian Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This time of year.Mid june -to- late july.
drift with beaded leader with NO# 3 blade, Tipped with night crawler
Try orange blade- in morning- yellow lunch- 2 pm green,
white blade at 5pm to 7pm. red and black till dark.I save $$ and build my own,
try getting all your drift harness suplies, then on a rainy day youll have something to do,

Night drifting is productive with 4 lb test. 1/8 oz splitt shot. 2 ft away from floating jig head,
tipp with crappie size minnow, SMALL minnow/
try along blackhawk,beach to around point,
other killer hole is turkey foot creek \"bay\", where lilly pad bed stops, at turkey foot anchor, 8 to 12 ft of water, tight line with the floating jigheads..saftey green-or white,,, we often pick up 4 -8 lb walleyes there.sometimes some really large cats,

REMEMBER release what you catch, You will be rewarded with larger fish later down the road and more fish to reproduce, Fish on everyone,
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.

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 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.
