Lake level is 716.10 and falling with water temp in the mid to upper 80's in the lower part of the lake.  The mid lake area is  lightly stained and some areas are pretty muddy.  The good news is the Hybrids and White Bass are biting all over the lake.  All hybrids were caught on White sassy shad lures and Green jigging spoons. Crappie fishing has improved as they have moved to the flats to feed on the shad.  Had nice limits last week in 14-25 feet of water fishing 10-11 feet down with minnows.  A few Whites and Drum seem to find their way into that area also along with some nice catfish.  I did fish some timber areas with mild success also using minnows at the same depth.  Accidently picked up a couple of nice Walleyes also. With the lake falling the Whites and Hybrids should be at or near the normal shallow humps and early and late surface action has been common.  Top water Super Spooks, Pop-Rs  and spoons have been the

Lake level is 708.59 and falling with water temp in the mid to upper 70s in the lower part of the lake.  The mid lake area is  lightly stained and some areas are pretty muddy.  The good news is the Hybrids and White Bass are biting all over the lake.  All hybrids were caught on White sassy shad lures and Green jigging spoons. Cory's One of Many Hannah's Hybrid Cody and Hannah really set some hooks and fill the live wells with some nice fish. Crappie fishing has not been in my report this week as I haven't been doing any.  Hybrids and whites have been the theme for my guide trips for about 10 days now.  Like all good things they will slow down a little and the crappie fishing will pick up once the lake level becomes stable again. It seems I may have confused some people when I put in my Saturday and Sunday schedule.  I am fishing 7 days a week but due to the high volume

Lake level is 715.64 and rising with water temp in the mid to upper 70s in the lower part of the lake.  The mid lake area is  lightly stained and some areas are pretty muddy.  The good news is the Hybrids and White Bass are biting all over the lake.  All hybrids were caught on White sassy shad lures and Green jigging spoons.  Nothing more exciting and what a fight. The whites were also hitting crappie jigs and I can T you that was a thrill to land on a 9 foot crappie pole.  The Dam should be running water for the next couple of weeks to bring the lake down to normal so the fish should really be feeding well.  Haven't done much crappie fishing this past week but have caught quite a few good crappie mixed in with the Whites on jigs.  As for the crappie fishing, try your favorite trees in 15-25 feet of water "Dr. Todd" had several nice hybrids along with some good whites. Debbie landed her very first hybrid

Lake level is 711.33 and rising with water temp in the mid to upper 60s in the lower part of the lake.  The mid lake area is  lightly stained and some areas are pretty muddy.  We had showers most every day at some point but the fish kept right on biting. Bob & Don The crappie spawn is over and was a real strange one.  The water temperature hardly reached the right point and it was game on and game over.  Seems like most of the crappie are in the 12-14 foot range in 20-30feet of water.  Minnows and jigs and 1/8 oz jigs tipped with minnows are working real well.  Trolling a flicker shad or a shad rap are producing stringers of good crappie.  As far as the white bass, they are hitting spoons of weights from 1/2 0z to  1 1/2 oz sizes with white or green chartreuse working the best.  There are a lot of small hybrids mixed in with the whites at this time.  Big hybrids are eating small

Lake level is 707.23 with water temp in the mid 60s in the lower part of the lake.  The mid lake area is  lightly stained and some areas are pretty muddy.  Wind has been a real pain this past week with it reaching 30 mph and gust above 40.  Rain seems to be in the forecast this coming week, but the fish are still biting. Crappie are spawning and the white bass are keeping them company.  My trips this week have caught both crappie and white bass in the shallows as well as white bass on the humps in the dam area.  Seems like most of the crappie are in the 5-12 foot range with very few right at the bank.  Black and Chartreuse Swarm Jigs and white and chartreuse Cuda Delights with an orange 1/8oz head have been deadly this year.  As far as the white bass, they are hitting spoons of weights from 1/2 0z to  1 1/2 oz sizes with white or silver working the best.  There are a lot of small

Lake level is 712.09 and water temp is 54 in the lower part of the lake.  The mid lake area is  lightly stained and some areas are pretty muddy. Crappie fishing has been good in the  mid-lake area with the best bite in the mid-day in the spawning coves in 18 to 23 feet of water right on the bottom.  Jigs tipped with a minnow have been the key for us all week.  With the constant change in the weather the water remains variable and not steady and certainly not reaching that 65 degree mark. hours I have an update on White Bass hanging around the Dam area.  Yesterday afternoon (Thursday 4/22) Three of us got our limits in just over two hours on spoons.  Sapps Landing should be crowded this time of the year. Many limits of crappie and white bass are being taken below the dam in the "Dead Water" area, and they are not hard to find.  Just get in with the other 500 boaters and pick you out a 2 foot

Lake level is 706.36 and water temp is 34 in the lower part of the lake.  The mid lake area is clear to lightly stained and some patches of ice early in the mornings.  The ice should disappear by 9-10am and with the warmer temperatures and high winds forecasted for this coming week along with the rain, should make a huge difference. Crappie fishing has been good in the  mid-lake area with the best bite in the mid-day on brush piles about 20-25 feet deep. Steve Blake and I went on a "research trip" together on Friday and caught over 100 keeper crappie and save 12 to split for supper.  All fish were caught on 1/4 oz pink jigs with pink and green chartreuse swarmjigs.  The bite was really light on the bigger fish.  We also found a lot of fish midway in the coves at various depths but mainly in the 25 foot range in 30-35 deep channels...That means they are moving in for the feed up before the spawn. Of course it is

The Lake is at normal pool 706.09 and the lake is pretty much frozen and so am I.  I'll be back when the lake thaws and the temperature get back in the high 30s......If you do venture out on the lake be very careful of air pockets and thin ice.  Better yet just perk another pot of coffee, turn on the TV, and install a rear end in your recliner....See ya all soon, Ole Bob

Lake level is 707.77 and water temp is 40.1 in the lower part of the lake.  The Grand remains slightly stained while most of the rest of the lake is clear. Crappie fishing has picked up the mid-lake area and there have been some "biguns" taken.   I have found tons of  fish in the trees about 25-30 feet deep on the bluffs some only 12-15 ft. deep....It's interesting that the Whitebass  are still hanging around on those deep bluffs also and if you drop in on a band of shad, you have not idea what is going to hit....The week was different as the shad were right on the bottom in a band 3-4 feet thick and the crappie and white bass were right in the middle of them and were hitting anything that moved in the band.  One time a crappie next time a white.  Great fishing, lousy weather....maybe the key? Cody's Bait & Tackle has a complete new supply of my 1/4 and 1/8 oz short shank jigs which have been the ticket
