Lake Whitney Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 2/18/12
4.5lb bass caught in the rain 10-15ft on brush piles with jigs. Took around 15lb on the local tournament today also. Budlight tomorrow goods luck! My estimate is that it will take 18lbs plus to take FIRST and 15lb might get a check! Going to be a good day to fish.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
67 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.

Lake Whitney Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The lake has a very very low chance of producing a smallmouth bass. Reason being they restock the lake at the wrong time period like when the stripers are crusing shallows?! Makes since plus they are scared of the "Golden Alge". Wish they would get over it and restock the smallmouth everyear so Lake Whitney can become a great smallmouth lake in the future like it was many years ago. They have been caught but in extreamly few numbers over the last few years. Be nice if the restocking group would get together and make the lake more than a small time striper lake.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass are generally their most active at 67. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the smallmouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.

Lake Whitney Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappie is a little slow right now due to the recent cold weather, still caught several with a
Crappie pole vertical fishing with live minnows, fishing should heat back up when the water temp
gets back to 68 or 70. Good luck out there.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!

- Six channel cat caught at the marina on live and cutbait yesterday here in Whitney
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

Lake Whitney White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Sandbass in full swing heading up the creeks especialy on the sunny warmer days. This is early for the lake but it also just came up in the neighborhood of 8ft. so with that and few good days of warm weather and the started. Slowed a bit for the cool front but just wait for a few warm days ahead. Lures Always flyrods, small jerkbaits "rebel" hint cheap and work, tiny rattle traps,small popper, and crappie style jig and baits that imitate small baitfish work also. crankbaits can work but when the water gets realy clear they tend to shy from them in the river.

Found a few stripers up shallow today busting on the top and bringing them in on just about anything you can get infront of there faces quickly. Last three days caught from 3-7lb stripers this way, calmer days make it easier to spot them pop the top.

Lake Whitney 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.
