Update 11/25/11

Friday, November 25th, 2011

We hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. Lake level is still at 600.5. The crappie are still biting. Fish back in the coves and creek channels. I would still find the blowdowns and fish them starting at about 6 FOW and shallower. This pattern should hold up until the lake ices over. We do still have minnows here. The people getting out aren’t having any trouble putting a limit in the livewell. Deer hunting is in the antlerless portion of the season until Dec 4. The black powder season opens Dec 17. The deer actually will have a resting period between seasons this year.

Lake level is at 600.6 with water temps about 50. Not a lot to report this week other than the crappie are still biting in the same places as they have been for those of you who still want to get out and catch some good fish. If you are only catching smaller fish move a bit deeper. They are there! As far as deer hunting goes we are past the “chasing” stage it looks like and into the gathering stage where you will find groups of does with a lone buck guarding them. Remember to donate a deer to the “Share the Harvest” program. Locally you can take a deer to 4Quarters Processing in Perry as well as Center Locker service in Center.

Update 11/4/11

You know it was dry when the 1.25″ of rain we got only added about .1 foot of water to the lake. We are at 600.4. Fishing seemed to be consistent this week. Consistently tough that is. They seem to finally be getting into the coves where they should be this time of year. Youth deer season is this weekend.

CRAPPIE: The bite seems to have moved more shallow and into the coves, but it is hard to say for sure as the wind blew pretty good all week and the shallow water makes getting to some of the familiar haunts a challenge to get to. I know some fish were caught in 2 FOW, but I also know there weren’t great catches. Way back into the rivers is also still giving up some good fish.

CATFISH: There were some decent blues caught this past week and some channels as well. This fishing should improve until ice up. If wee get the rain that is forecast for next week it should be real good wherever the water is flowing into the lake.

BASS: No reports.
