I just came back from Oliphant, today\'s date is 07/18/2015, the lake gate is locked and a sign from the DNR saying no fishing until further notice. This is strange since John D. Long lake in Union SC was reopened just this month. It\'s reported that the bass were overwhelming the other fish so the \"lowered the lake\" and removed bass. The biggest fish that we caught at Long was about a 5\" bream.

Lake Oliphant Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie should be very aggressive and feeding well. Feeding should be very heavy right now especially in the morning and evenings and Spawn Should be really fueled up with some fish on their beds currently and actively doing their business. Focus fishing in the upper half and ends of the tributary arms. Best thing this time of year is to fish a little faster with throwing cranking jigs and small crappie crank baits utilizing and fishing different depths until you find a good concentration of fish. Start at the mouths of the arms and work your way back to the shallow spawning areas and fish hard and fast until you find them. Try finding some shallow ditches coming off the channels and heading to shallow spawning areas. On Sunny or warmer days hit those shallow areas hard. NOW IS THE TIME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT IS ON!!

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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
