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, especially during dirty water events. 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.
