Indian Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Indian Lake at 48 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.

- Berkley crappie power bait
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 48 Prime Crappie fishing is in full swing. Crappies should be migrating to their spawning areas now. They?ll either be up in the final spawning area now or at tributary entrances. Concentrate around 15 feet of water. Fish Primary points at the mouth of the creek arms. Fish Targets at this point instead of focusing on bait fish. Fish trees, shrubs, vegetation, etc. Fishing correctly this time of year will get you snagged quite a bit since you need to focus on making and keeping contact with the cover.

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):
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.

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.

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!
