Lake is coming up but still about 4 foot low
water temp is 57 to 59
crappie are starting to go crazy. had 2 limits this morning. hit the spawning areas and fi8sh from 2 to 6 foot deep with jigs. Great fishing during the spawn
Walleye are moving towards the points for a little feeding after the spawn. use jigs and crawlers in 6 to 12 foot of water
Bass are pre spawn and can be found on bluff ends or secondary points. best baits are jigs or wiggle warts.
Catfish hang out in the channels, but I can't begin how and where to send you to catch them.
Bass hang out in the same areas but seem to be a little shallower than the crappie during the winter months. Fish jerk baits or an a rig and be prepared to hook into some nice bass. Once you find them, you can have a great day even when it's really cold.
For all those that don't want to spend the winter on a boat, the bluffs offer some nice winter fishing for crappie. Just fish them really slow and bring extra jigs.
Tight lines and see ya on the lake,
