Crappie:  The Crappie have been on fire the last week.  Good fish are being caught in the channels using bubblegum and acid rain.  Most are targeting fish between 10 - 20 feet water level.  Minnow fishermen are catching fish in the pads.  Check out post for recent pictures.

Bass:  The bass are moving shallow and good fish are being caught all over the lake.

Bream/Shellcracker:  Little early but few have been caught.

Catfish:  Good stringers of catfish being caught.

Spring Room Bookings are going fast……Reserve your rooms early to be here when the fish are biting.

The date for the annual “Rusty Leverette Memorial Crappie Tournament” has been set for Saturday 13 April 2013.  This year the payback will be one in three boats so many fishermen will walk away with prizes.  Please contact Lake Talquin Lodge for more details.
