Fishing was fair. Most of the fish were suspended 2' to 3' off bottom in 9' to 13' of water. Crank baits 8/11 divers medium retrieve with pause, very effective. Best color for today ( silver and black).

"Crappies were slow to no, this week, but channel cats were very active. Channel catsfish were biting very good on crappie minnows and cut shiners.We hooked one that I estimeated to be about 15 lbs on half a shiner and caught numerous 1 to 3 lbs fish on a combination of minnows and shiners. Bass were not very active and I caught one about 3 lbs. Also, caught my first white bass out of Knox last week. Good luck fishing!"

- If your looking for the position of these bass, try slowing down a bit with a 1/4 oz. Electric blue jig.
By the way Ive catching them off of shallow to deep structure points. The slower the better. All fish
are averaging 3 to 4 lbs.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Knox Lake at 55 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.

Knox Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
Knox Lake Walleye Rating:

Knox Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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!
Knox Lake Catfish Rating:
4.1
Knox Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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 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.
