Aberdeen Lake - 3/23/2015


The bass and crappie reports were good last week. The recent rains may dampen the bite, but shouldn't hurt it too much. The crappie moved to the banks and should be spawning, but there should be ample pre spawn fish as well. To increase your chances, try getting off the channel and looking for the clearest water you can find. Most crappie are running ¾ to 1 lb with some bigger fish holding off the banks in slightly deeper water waiting to move up. Both jigs and minnows are catching fish, but contrasting colored jigs usually work better around the spawn. The bass were also shallow and should be in both pre spawn and spawning stages. Spinnerbaits, swimbaits, and square billed crankbaits are good search baits for pre spawn fish, while jigs and t-rigged lizards will be productive baits for those fish on or near the bed. The catfish bite is fair with most anglers fishing trotlines and rod-n-reels on the navigation channel and the old river runs with whole or cut shad.
