- Actually its quite the opposite. The
water temp is at 48. But the largemouth
fishing is phenomenal right now. The jig
as a good recommendation but fish it
shallow around rocks to pick up quality

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappies will be deep and much more sluggish now than in warmer temperature water. They are definitely catchable if you know a few tips. Check the main river channels in deep water. Catching crappie from 25 all they down below 60 feet deep is not uncommon for this time of year. Vertical presentations work best in winter. Fish straight down below the boat using minnows, and other live bait, or really good scented bait. Kentucky Rigged baits and spoons jigged vertically and nice and slow work great also. Good luck!

Raystown Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Take Nylon stockings, cut it up and rap it around your bait (chicken livers). Tie the stocking with bait onto your hook and let it sink. The bait won\'t come off but the smell will get out for the cat fish. Get the stockings at your local naked bait shop. - Scott Kelly

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
