"10/01/10 With the temperature being great - I thought it would be a great day to fish. Cooper Lake State Park: Mosquitos: Didn't fish because The mosquitos are over populated. As I walked to the water: you would see waves of mosquitos flying up with every step i took...worst i have ever seen. Water: Water level lower than normal. Slight wind, but alot of waves. Fishing: Didn't think it to be worth getting eaten alive (mosquitos) Hope to come back and try again in a few weeks. Go away Mosquitos! :)"

Cooper Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
At 56 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Cooper 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.
Cooper Lake Catfish Rating:
3.5
Cooper Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Catfishing is best in the winter, go deep with shrimp, nighcrawlers, and cut shad, or wait till water is flowing out the dam and use shad in the river. Bring big tackle for the river, 110 lbs blues are not uncommon.
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.
