Had not been to Reelfoot in years. A group of 6 of us hired a guide for the first day. We were able to boat 31 crappie. All of the conditions have to be right on this lake to catch fish. The next 3 days, the water was too rough. Poor fishing unless you're fishing for catfish. If you fish this lake, good luck. Fishing is not what it used to be on this lake 3/8/2017

Just returned from Reelfoot on 4/17-4/19, crappie fishing somewhat slow. Lake level seems to be a little higher than normal. Catching most crappie on jigs/minnows @ 18 inches...not a lot to brag about.

Reelfoot Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- We had a trip from March 8-11 2017. We were only able to get out 1 day due to storms and high wind. It was a guided trip. The 1 day total was 7 fish. Spider rigging is the only way to go on this lake when conditions are less than perfect.

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.
Reelfoot Lake Catfish Rating:
3.5

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. 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. Have a great day!
