Buckhorn Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I\'ve been catching crappie 10 to 11 inches in size using minnows. If you can find a bait store that\'s still open get live bait it\'s working best right now for crappie fishing. I\'ve found that the river channel of Buckhorn Lake down near the damn is the best place to catch them.
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.

Buckhorn Lake 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.

Buckhorn Lake White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I find it hard to believe the rating is so low for white bass. The white bass are coming off the nest right now and are extremely active anywhere from the opossum bend portion to the low water bridge in the confluence section. Night-crawlers are pretty good, red-worms are better, green stink worms is the best live worm. I find with artificial that I have the best luck with white rooster tail & gold tone medium spinners.

Buckhorn 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.
