Fished the lake Sunday 3/15/15 didn\'t do well on crappie ( my target) but was able to pull in 35 okay bluegill(dinner). The size limit is only 8inches for crappie, I am starting to wonder if the numbers are now too few with the all the pressure. The one that I caught still had eggs and didn\'t seem ready to drop them.

Tried for catfish today with Sonny\'s in the cove by the pier. Got 4 hookups, but all 4 fish immediately buried themselves in the brush that seems to be everywhere, and I could not get any of them out. One was a pretty big fish by the way he bent the rod over. Was using 20# mono, but I guess that 50#+ braid might work better.

Great time to take the kids out on the lake. All kinds of fish are biting on worms. Pitching a rebel cricket will land fish after fish and the kids will have a great time.

- Been to this lake dozens of time never done good this lake sucks!

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
67 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Herb Parsons Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I use to be a none believer of this lake also
until I caught my personal best crappie slow
trolling minnows. Although the lake has depths
as deep as 25 ft. U will find them hanging
around 6 to 8 ft..slow your troll rate down an
wait for that bite.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

- There is not walleye in this lake.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

- Fish the main lake points with chicken livers. Use heavy line. I was expecting 3-5 lbs fish, but hooked into several 10+ pounds that broke me off.

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.
