Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report
February 19, 2016
WARM DAYS AHEAD
Jackie Wayne's Back with another fishing report on Reelfoot Lake...
It appears the wait is over as warm weather is in the forecast.
Water temp is in the 40's to 50's witch is good, the lake level is about
a foot high...also good.
Crappie are still in the deep water...I'm talking about 10- 12 feet
deep, biting on double minnow rigs...also chart. jigs tip with
minnows...fishing slow...I mean slow!
Bass are slow not much happening sorry but that's the way it is.
Bluegill no report.
Catfish are doing nothing...
...so your best bet is crappie. Get your tackle ready and make sure your
boat is also ready. Don't forget to get your license. New fishing and
hunting licenses will go on sale this weekend across the Volunteer
State. Your current licenses expire February 29.
New licenses are good from the date of purchase so itís a good idea to
get them ahead of time and not wait until the last minute. Oftentimes
folks forget and discover themselves out on the lake with an expired
Prices have not changed from last year. The basic hunting and fishing
combination, which is type 001, costs $34. Itís good until the last day
of February 2017 and required for those ages 16 through 64 years of age,
unless you purchase an annual sportsman license.
Licenses are available at several local licenses agents, county court
clerk offices and online at www.tnwildlife.org.
Till next time God Bless and have fun!
Thanks Jackie Wayne !
