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 40's, 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.
