ABERDEEN LAKE (TENN-TOM):
Late Fall/Winter fishing report: The crappie bite will be fair until water temps drop below 50 degrees. Best areas to target will be the old river runs with the best depths being 5 to 10 ft. Once the water temps drop into the 40s, the bass and crappie bite will be tough. Not that bass and crappie can’t be caught, there just aren’t many people trying to catch them on Aberdeen this time of year. With that said, however, several days of warm weather will cause the bass and crappie to get active, particularly in the shallow sloughs that are off the channel and somewhat protected. Texas-rigged plastics, jig-n-pig combos, and spinnerbaits are all good bait choices with any warming trend. Weekly fishing reports will pick back up the first week of February.
