Applegate Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
-
the location cited on the map was a virtual fish nursery when the Christmas tree enhancement program was in effect. All of the trees have deteriorated now and the location is dead. I have caught and released 10 to 15 2 to 3 lb crappies here along with numerous smaller ones in a day's fishing. This location needs to be restored as it is one of the best locations on the Lake. The long string of trees at about 40 ft was always alive with bait fish, small mouth bass, large mouth bass crappies, and large bluegills. I have pictures of 2-3 lb crappies to back up this claim.

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.

Applegate Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
