Leesville Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Leesville Lake has a 9.9 Hp max motor limit. The bass will hide in large trees
when the water is cold. The trees that are close to the surface warm up from the
sun during the day and the bass will \"snuggle UP \" to them. They use the trees as
a place to ambush smaller fish that try to warm up also. The surface water warms
up quickly during the day.
Leesville has weedbeds later grow to the surface during the summer. You can catch
all species of fish in and around the weed beds.

Leesville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
