Went fishing 4/18/14,4/19/14 and 4/21/14 and caught fish all three days.. The water level is on the rise and the bass are biting. There re a lot of folks out on the water and the shore is lined with people, all doing what they love...... Fishing! I ended up in greasy cove all three trips and caught bass from the begging of the cove to the very end. Get out and enjoy the weather before it gets too hot, good luck and happy fishing.

09-22-11. 4pm-7pm. Threw rattle traps for an hour with no results.. Bass seemed to be feeding on shad... A lot of top water activity but every shad immitation lure I threw wasn't workin'... So i switched to my go-to bass rig..., plastic worm and a Texas rig... Caught about a dozen lil' guys and two keepers... The two keepers hit right before sundown... Ended up being a pretty fun couple of hours at the lake.... Mike Mike

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Lake Kaweah Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I used packaged shad, 1/4 ounce wieght and caught four catfish here last night from about 8:30-10pm. biggest was just under 5lb. My truck said it was 49 degrees outside. Pretty windy, but since catfish hunt by smell, the stinky shad worked well. Or maybe I got lucky.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Lake Kaweah White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Use minnows, and white grubs. The government thought they erraticated this fish out of this lake, but they are still
abundant... You just have to know where to look and what to look for. Ice chest full is possible, it\'s been done. Creek
inlets are the best.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
