Reelfoot Lake Fishing Report for:
Fall weather is upon us and the fishing should get better and better over the coming weeks. Right now there's good bass and crappie action and very pleasant weather to boot, occasional windy days withstanding.
Even the ducks have been showing up in the last few days. Good numbers of gadwalls, teal and widgeon could be seen moving in today.
Water temperature is at 75. Lake level is at pool level. Here's the rest:
Crappie- Good. Jackie had 40 keepers today in 6-8 feet of water fishing minnows. Said he fished a 50 yard radius the whole time. So, if you find em, stay with em.
Not catching a bunch of monsters, but a bunch of 1/2 to 1 lb. fish. Nothing wrong with that.
Bass- Good. Anglers are having good success fishing the duck weed that's built up in the down wind pockets. Try a frog, buzzbait, tube or any bait that will work well around that thick stuff. Move it real slowly at first over the thickest parts, just to get their attention. They usually can't take it any more once it hits the edge of the weeds.
Stripes (Yellow bass)- Good. They're having luck with pin minnows and white jigs. Calm days are best.
