Mark Twain Lake Crappie Rating:
3.3
Mark Twain Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Often, the fish aren't aggressive, but you'll catch more fish if YOU are aggressive. If you don't get a bite in one spot for ten minutes or so, pack up and move. You won't find 'em if you stay in an unsuccessful spot. Minnows are easily the bait of choice although jigs tend to yield larger fish. We generally tie up to trees/limbs/stumps on the edges of treelines - the closer to the points you can get - the better. Early in the year, fish five feet down. During the summer months, start at ten-ish feet deep and work your way up.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
