Water Temperature:
"January 1 Fising Report. January usually means cold weather with numerous fronts passing through. When the water temperature drops to the lower fifties and forties, look for the bait- fish and bass to move into deep water. The easiest way to locate the bass is to locate the bait- fish. Concentrate looking for balls of shad on your LCR in deep creeks, sloughs and along the river channel. When you locate the shad the bass are usually underneath the shad just off the bottom or suspended. If the bass are on the bottom, they will orient themselves close to some type of structure, brush- tops, lay-downs, stumps, ledges, drops or humps. A jig or jigging spoon fished vertically can be very effective in triggering a strike. If the bass are suspended a fluttering spoon or tail spinner cast out and counted down and retrieved with a pumping motion will also trigger a strike. Once the fish have moved into deep water, the strong northern fronts really don't affect them as much as they do when the fish are in shallow water. Remember when fishing cold water, we need to down size our baits and fish extremely slow.

Water Temperature: 49
Fishing Report from Covington Guide Service on Toledo Bend Lake in Texas. Water Temp: Main Lake: 49 degrees. Creeks: 49 degrees in the mornings and warms to 53 degrees in the afternoons if we have sunshine. We are still seeing alot of shad dying off and floating to the surface. The water clarity is very stained to muddy in the backs of the creeks. The water temp has dropped 4 to 5 degrees with the passage of this last cold front. This will keep the fish in a holding pattern for now. Warmer weather is coming and we canít wait but Mother Nature will dictate when those changes will occur. Crappie Report: The bridges are still producing some crappie in this area along with fishing off the docks and piers at night. Some of the brush piles that are built in the middle of the creeks are holding some fish. Shiners and Yellow Jigs are both catching fish depending on the water clarity.

"Fishing Report Feb 1st by Joe Joslin of Toledo Bend. Milder weather is slowly getting things back to normal but cold water temperatures took a toll on last weekend's Skeeter Boats Bass Champs East Texas Series. Pete Shivers of Kirbyville, TX and Doyle Tibbits of Broaddus, TX captured the first place check of $20,000 with just over 19 pounds of bass. Last year (January 2009) on Big Sam at the same event there were 8 teams catching over 20 pounds and in-the-money cutoff was nearly 16 pounds whereas Saturday about 12.2 pounds got you a check. Cold water temperatures was the major difference. For the rest of Joe Joslin fishing report go to http://www.joejoslinoutdoors.com/fishingrptsam.asp"

Toledo Bend Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Toledo Bend at 51 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.

Toledo Bend Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- fish along main river ledges around trees with shiners 3 to 4 feet off bottom. also jig shiner around trees
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.

Toledo Bend Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
