Aberdeen Lake

The crappie reports can be considered good. The crappie are hanging around any cover in shallow water (2 - 4 ft deep). Look for clearer water in the backwater areas with grass and stumps. Both minnows and jigs are working, but jigs (black with pink or chartreuse) seem to be the better choice in those dirty water situations. Most crappie are running ¾ to 1 lb with some bigger fish holding off the banks in slightly deeper water. The bass were also shallow with both grass and wood holding fish particularly in the dirtier water. In the clearer backwaters, reports of spawning activity are coming in. Spinnerbaits, flukes, buzzbaits, and t-rigged lizards are all productive baits right now with a few fish coming on topwater frogs as well. If you can find some clean water, try throwing a weightless senko. It took a little over 30 pounds to win the two day federation tournament there this past weekend. The catfish bite is fair with most anglers fishing trotlines and rod-n-reels on the navigation channel and the old river runs. Try fishing the mouth of the old river as the current from the dams spilling may turn the bite on.
