ABERDEEN LAKE (TENN-TOM):
What can be said other than it is still cold and muddy. This
past weekend of cold temps and wet weather didn’t do fishermen any favors. However,
if you can find some cleaner water, you will likely have better odds of
catching some fish as nothing is tougher than trying to catch fish in cold,
muddy water. These conditions have kept many anglers off the water in hopes of
better fishing. The few that are braving the elements are mostly bass fishermen
getting ready for the upcoming tournament season. A few bass bites are being
reported in the very backs of the sloughs where clearer water can be found.
Slow presentations like jig-n-pig combos and dark colored t-rigged plastics
have been best baits. As water temps start to warm up, spinnerbaits will be a
popular choice. The rip rap on the upper end of the lake will hold a little
more heat during sunny days so try flat sided crankbaits and various soft
plastic rigs there for a bite or two. The crappie reports are few and far
between. The crappie should get hot about the 2nd or 3rd
week of March.
