Cowan Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/10 Right now you should be using frogs in the thick moss and lily pads. I have caught quite a few on a Black Spro Bronze eye jr.,Black Ribbits (Awesome Bait) and Jig and Pig in the thick cover. Keeping it simple. Dont work your frogs to fast. Stay in the shady areas and depth has not been a factor. Catching bass in 1 and 2 ft of water in the thick stuff mostly on points and in the coves, stickin to the basics. Fished 6 hours today started at 5:45 this morning and went till noon. Caught my last one at 11:30 when it was sunny and 88 on my temp gauge. These baits are like shovels you just have to dig em out.

Cowan Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 7/24/2010 Caught a few deep 10 ft min. This lake has no size limit so please use your good judgment before keeping crappie that you might get 1 oz of slab off of. Seen way to many people keeping very small crappie this past spring.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

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.

Cowan Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
