Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
This time of year the wind is a major factor for Reelfoot crappie fishermen. When it lays it's time to get out there. That was the case on Monday when some calm conditions provided more than a few nice catches of crappie.
Jackie was fishing 10 feet of water and brought in a nice limit of crappie in a hurry. He caught them on double minnow rigs fished under a slip bobber.
It seems that the fish are already moving a little shallower. Guide Steve Tittle had a good day fishing in just 6-8 feet of water. For more information on his day...check out this article.
As the weather warms the fish respond quickly. Like Jackie says, "They know it's going to warm before we do". So don't be afraid to move shallower if the deep water isn't producing as well.
We're supposed to have temperatures in the mid/low 60's this weekend, but they've also predicted that the wind will blow. Just because the wind can keep you off the deeper holes doesn't necessarily mean you can't catch some fish. Find some 6-10 foot water in a calm area and you've still got a good shot at bringing in a mess of crappie.
Got a few bass reports this week also. While it's still slow, they're catching a few and there have been some nice ones caught. Reports of 4 and 6 pounders have already been heard. Look for the bass fishing to pick up in the next few weeks.
Lake level is a couple of inches above pool and the water temps were 44 degreees on Monday.
