Fishing Report

Aberdeen Lake - 11/15/2019 2:18:43 PM
Species Detail
Bass Water temperatures are slowly cooling off, slow down your presentation. With the recent rain and colder temperatures bass should move toward the channel and suspend. Soft plastics fished on channel ledges should be good as well. This weekend the bass should move to shallower water and start to feed on baitfish with temperatures warming back up some.
Crappie Look for crappie suspended in 12 to 18 feet of water around 8 foot deep. Try channel ledges and some flats 5 to 8 foot deep.
Catfish Catfish bite is fair; should pick up some as the water clears up some. Try using cut/whole shad and kool-aid flavored chicken while jug fishing or bumping the bottom with rod and reel. Look for areas just off the navigation channel out of the current to hold fish.
