FALL WELCOMED BY ANGLERS
The seasons have now traded
places and autumn angling is alive and well thanks to some nice weather
lately that has worked in favor of fishermen.
The cooler temperatures have had an
influence on surface temperatures which fell a few degrees. Readings
this week were in the 70 to 73 degree range. Water color remains clear
to light green stain.
Reelfoot Lake is 15 -18" below pool level. The lake will rise some
with the area receiving some much needed rain. All ramps are open, but
still use caution putting your
boat in around the ramps, and motoring across the lake.
Crappie: Good: Fall crappie have been hitting good in depths of
8 to12 feet, jigging the
visible stumps and logs. Popular jigs have been
Strike King pumpkin seed and June bug. Remember, the limit is 30 Crappie per day per man.
There are no size limits on Reelfoot Lake.
Bass fishermen continue to find fish around the trees and logs along the
shoreline. Tossing spinnerbaits, Rattle Trap style baits and
shallow running shad colored crankbaits.
Great: The catfish are biting all over the lake using Strike King stink
Stripes: Great: The stripes are surfacing and biting on white beetle
spins and pin minnows.
Fall fishing is alive and well.
