Pine Flat Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I catch them deep at 65 feet in feburary .Most of the time i use live bait as they seldom take artifical lures and jigs . I spent years to find the right spot and they are there every single year for the last 6 years .You can get limits with up to 4lb crappie . Pineflat is not known for its crappie but those that have found out the spot and what to use and technique enjoy haveing this monopoly on the lake . By the way the crappie at pineflat are extremely tasty and clean tasteing .
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.

Pine Flat Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- catfish are heating up because I went there may 1st 2010 and caught 12 in 30min.Catfish are spawning this time so you can just go out there and find a spot where there is a lot of vegetation and flat planes under the water.
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.

Pine Flat Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Spotted bass are mostly caught around March through May and where there are many bait fish. They will often bite around 12 o clock and 3 o clock when it is very sunny. The most used and most affective lures are usually plastic worms and crawdads. To find these fish,look for heavy vegetation or trees.
The average length is 15 inches or more. Identifying them is a little tricky with a largemouth bass.To identify,look for three clues the mouth and the color. The mouth of a largemouth bass goes pass the eye while the mouth of the spotted bass doesn't. Also spotted bass has a tongue patch. The color of a largemouth bass is olive green and has a black line going through the middle of its body. The color of a spotted bass is dark green and has a black line,like the largemouth, going through the middle of its body followed by many spots.

- There are trout and kokanee salmon in the lake. The fish do not stay in deep places. They bite on power bait and most of the time the kokanee salmon will eat shad running along the surface on the lake.
