reelfoot lake fishing report

Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
June 12th, 2006

Anglers are still having good success for most species. Although it isn't a big surprise, it is a little late in the year for some species to be doing so well. Bluegill and catfish are leading the way right now, with bass and crappie not too far behind.

Lake level is a couple of inches above pool level. Water temps were at 79 degrees a couple of days ago, but may have risen a little since. Here's the rest:

Crappie- Still good in the mornings. Don't guess we ever saw the post spawn let down, or at least not as dramatically as some years. Try them from daylight until about 10-11 for the best action. Minnows are the top bait.

Bass- Bass seem to have really picked up lately and are good or better. No real revelations, just hit the shorelines with spinnerbaits and shallow running crankbaits. Jackie said almost any shoreline should produce a few.

Bluegill-Good to excellent. They are bedded up in 2-4 feet of water. Crickets are working well.

Catfish- Excellent. Try your favorite catfish bait in 3-6 feet of water around the usual structure (showing logs, trees, outside the pads).

Stripes (Yellowbass)- No reports.
