What You Can Catch
Don't let the cold winter weather keep you away from some of the best winter fishing in the country. While you may think that the water temperatures in January or February are too frigid to catch fish, it is actually one of the best times of the year to catch a number of different fish, as well as some of the biggest fish in the lake. During these months you can find water temperatures averaging between the mid or upper 30s and the low to mid-40s.
Winter is an excellent time to fish for bass by slowly fishing jerkbaits off points or pea gravel banks. However, the months of January and February are unique because you can catch crappie on the same baits that are used to catch bass. The most popular lure to catch crappie and bass is a suspending jerkbaits. Big crappie will be schooled up during these winter months, so it is not uncommon to catch a limit of giant crappie on consecutive casts to a single spot.
