- Berkley crappie power bait
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Indian Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This time of year.Mid june -to- late july.
drift with beaded leader with NO# 3 blade, Tipped with night crawler
Try orange blade- in morning- yellow lunch- 2 pm green,
white blade at 5pm to 7pm. red and black till dark.I save $$ and build my own,
try getting all your drift harness suplies, then on a rainy day youll have something to do,

Night drifting is productive with 4 lb test. 1/8 oz splitt shot. 2 ft away from floating jig head,
tipp with crappie size minnow, SMALL minnow/
try along blackhawk,beach to around point,
other killer hole is turkey foot creek \"bay\", where lilly pad bed stops, at turkey foot anchor, 8 to 12 ft of water, tight line with the floating jigheads..saftey green-or white,,, we often pick up 4 -8 lb walleyes there.sometimes some really large cats,

REMEMBER release what you catch, You will be rewarded with larger fish later down the road and more fish to reproduce, Fish on everyone,
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

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:

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.
