There are large catfish off the west boat ramp jUst to the left. You have to use bloody anchovies or shad and cast really far out. We have been using large sea fishing poles so we get out a lot farther then most from the shore. You have to find the warm pockEts in the water. TRy fishing from 11am to about 3 pm in this area. We brought home an average of 5 before we went bass fishing. There Are a lot of good size bass out there but they are all close to the shore. We have been getting the limit in less then an hour all about the limit. You have to hit the areas that have the most brush and and cover. The north side of the lake has huge bass.

Water Temperature:
"Lots of small bass 5-10"" hitting large rattle traps aggressively from the bank mid-day (hooked over 20 between 4-5PM). Not a single one was legal size. Boaters said they were having similar results off various baits. Triad catfishing with cutbait and liver from 10PM to 2AM and absolutely nothing. If anyone is catching catfish in this lake, or decent size bass, please report some details here."

"7/2/10-7/3/10 3 of us fished from 6:00pm - 1:00am.Very tough. Had one hook up, and one bite on brushhog. Crawdads did not produce. Fish are suspended in 25-50ft of water near dropoffs and rock banks due to water temp increase."

"07-06-10 Fished a small tournament with 11 fishermen from 6:00pm-9:00pm. None weighed in a keeper fish. Fish are still suspended over deep water and not feeding agressively. Tried many types of baits- Cranks, Worms, Jigs, Swim baits, But nothing produced a strike. Good Luck to everyone..."

Lake Success Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

- No Flatheads here
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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
