Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report
February 25, 2016
SAY GOODBYE TO FEBRUARY
WARM DAYS AHEAD
Jackie Wayne's Back with another fishing report on Reelfoot Lake...
Speaking of warm weather...itís in the forecast again and should
last well into next week. Thatís a welcomed change after our last cold
front dropped temperatures along with a lot of rain.
Shallow water temp is in the 50's...deep water temp is in the 40's. Lake
level is still above pool about 6 inches.
Crapper are being caught around stems in 3 to 5 feet of water. Also
catching them in 8 to14 feet on minnows and jigs.
Bass have turn on and biting spinner baits, jerk baits, spoons,
jigs, devil horse so get your tackle ready boys...it's on.
Blue gills are also biting good in the Kirby Pocket area.
They are hitting jigs tip with wax worms 2 to 5 feet deep around stems.
Catfish are doing nothing...
Don't forget to get your license. New fishing and
hunting licenses are on sale now 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. Don't wait until the last minute...forget and go
with last years license.
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 !
