Had not been to Reelfoot in years. A group of 6 of us hired a guide for the first day. We were able to boat 31 crappie. All of the conditions have to be right on this lake to catch fish. The next 3 days, the water was too rough. Poor fishing unless you're fishing for catfish. If you fish this lake, good luck. Fishing is not what it used to be on this lake 3/8/2017

Just returned from Reelfoot on 4/17-4/19, crappie fishing somewhat slow. Lake level seems to be a little higher than normal. Catching most crappie on jigs/minnows @ 18 inches...not a lot to brag about.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Reelfoot Lake at 46 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.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 46 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.

Reelfoot Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- We had a trip from March 8-11 2017. We were only able to get out 1 day due to storms and high wind. It was a guided trip. The 1 day total was 7 fish. Spider rigging is the only way to go on this lake when conditions are less than perfect.

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.
