Raystown Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Actually its quite the opposite. The
water temp is at 48. But the largemouth
fishing is phenomenal right now. The jig
as a good recommendation but fish it
shallow around rocks to pick up quality
largemouth feeding on crawfish.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Raystown Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Take Nylon stockings, cut it up and rap it around your bait (chicken livers). Tie the stocking with bait onto your hook and let it sink. The bait won\'t come off but the smell will get out for the cat fish. Get the stockings at your local naked bait shop. - Scott Kelly

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!
