"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!"

Knox Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 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):
76 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Knox Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.
