Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With J Percy Priest Lake at 54 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.

J Percy Priest Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The Crappie population at an all time low.need to stock black crappie and black nose crappie,and white crappie bring back the crappie fishing that we had in the 80'S

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.

J Percy Priest 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!

J Percy Priest Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Went Sunday morning and put 13 channel cats in the boat any where from 2 to 5lbs in about 8 feet
of water on a flat just off the channel on night crawlers.
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.

J Percy Priest Lake Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Since TVA lowered the lake a lot (when we went out the dock was floating when quit for the day it was grounded and barely in the water) and the temperature has dropped (down from a high of 63 to 58 or less). We didn't do as well as some of our previous trips. Stripped Bass were biting on a small silver and gold lure in about 5 to 8 feet of water near Stevens Point.

We saw lots of fish holding down in 20 feet of water but it was too windy to fish the deep spots.

J Percy Priest Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
