Fishing was fair. Most of the fish were suspended 2' to 3' off bottom in 9' to 13' of water. Crank baits 8/11 divers medium retrieve with pause, very effective. Best color for today ( silver and black).

"Crappies were slow to no, this week, but channel cats were very active. Channel catsfish were biting very good on crappie minnows and cut shiners.We hooked one that I estimeated to be about 15 lbs on half a shiner and caught numerous 1 to 3 lbs fish on a combination of minnows and shiners. Bass were not very active and I caught one about 3 lbs. Also, caught my first white bass out of Knox last week. Good luck fishing!"

- If your looking for the position of these bass, try slowing down a bit with a 1/4 oz. Electric blue jig.
By the way Ive catching them off of shallow to deep structure points. The slower the better. All fish
are averaging 3 to 4 lbs.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappies will be deep and much more sluggish now than in warmer temperature water. They are definitely catchable if you know a few tips. Check the main river channels in deep water. Catching crappie from 25 all they down below 60 feet deep is not uncommon for this time of year. Vertical presentations work best in winter. Fish straight down below the boat using minnows, and other live bait, or really good scented bait. Kentucky Rigged baits and spoons jigged vertically and nice and slow work great also. Good luck!
