Lake Lou Yaeger 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.

Lake Lou Yaeger Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Channel Catfish and Blue Catfish (if they exist in the lake) are actively
feeding in the shallow coves on dead shad especially during warm sunny days. Try
using shad guts and smelly dough baits. If you do not like the smelly baits,
night crawler worms will work too, because the spring rains often wash them into
the lake and catfish are feeding on them too. On cold days, the fish sometimes
retreat to deeper water. Flathead Catfish are just starting to wake up too. Some
of the biggest fish can be caught on live Bluegills in shallow coves at night
especially in coves close to their deep water wintering holes. Spring rains
means flowing water and catfish take full advantage of this during this time of
the year. Look for catfish to stack up at the mouth of the creeks as they flow
into the lake. The water from the shallow creeks tends to be warmer and also the
flowing water brings food from the creeks to the catfish. Try night crawler or
fresh cut shad or Bluegill for bait for best results. Try fishing both on the
bottom and with floats for fast action.
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.
