Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
Waited until Jackie got through today hoping for some better news on the crappie, but didn't get it.
Fishing is still in a funk on Reelfoot, there's no way around it. Good news is that the weather looks very favorable for the next 7 days or so. A slow warming trend is in the forecast and it can only help the fishing. Next weekend should be primed for some better action.
Whether anything will happen before then is anybody's guess. Things could start to pick up in the next day or two. Heck, you just never know in March what's liable to happen.

Water temperature is around 48. Lake level continues to drop and is just a couple of inches above pool level right now. Here's the gist of it:
Crappie -Slow. If you're trying them during these tough fishing conditions you might as well try the deepest water you can find in the area you're fishing.
If it warms up you might try depths of 10-14. Start on the bottom, but move up shallower in that same depth if they're not biting. Jackie said try up to 6 feet deep in that 10-14 foot range if you get a day where it warms up considerably.
Minnows are a good bet while the conditions are tough like this. Make sure to fish slow until action picks back up.
Largemouth - Slow.
Bluegill - Slow
Others - Slow, Slow, Slow
