Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
Crappie fishing had been good until the cold front came through on Wednesday. In Jackie's words, "They were eating it up until the front hit".
Fronts are always a big factor in winter and early spring. Not only does the drop in temperature throw them off for a few days, but the winds that often accompany them don't help anglers a bit.
Look for the crappie to rebound in short order. Maybe even in a day or two. Good weather is predicted this weekend. Highs around 60. Might be time to dust off the poles and give it a try.
Anglers had been catching them in a variety of depths ranging from 4-14 feet. Minnows and jigs have both been producing some nice stringers. Jig colors include the old Reelfoot favorites (blk/chart, blue/white and pink/chart).
Lake level is still high. Somewhere around 6 inches above pool stage. We don't have a water temp right now.
Bass fishing also produced a few decent catches until the front hit. While it's still awful early for them, reports were fair on chartreuse and white spinnerbaits.
No reports on other species.
