Fishing Report 18 Dec 2012

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Crappie:  Good reports of crappie being caught from Freeman Creek to the Dam.  The best baits are bubblegum, acid rain, and white/chartruse using litewirehooks.  Many fishermen are using #4 or #5 piece of lead approximately 18 inches above the jig and throwing way back.  Speed from .8 to 1 MPH has worked the best.  Bites are coming on the ledges and when bottom contour changes.  Light winds and warm weather increases the number of fish being caught.

Bass: Some Bass being caught around Boat Docks with trash

Bream:  No bream fishermen during the last few weeks.

Catfish:  The catfish are still biting just about all over the lake.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all fishermen and remember “The fish are always biting at Lake Talquin Lodge”
