Fishing Forcast and Weather

Hello Grand Lake!

It sure has been a mild winter and the fish are beginning their Spring patterns. I saw water temps all the way up to the 60's on the north end and high 50's main lake.

Blue catfish are getting spread out and taking some time to locate. We are finding fish at all difference water depths depending on the bait locations. We've literally caught fish in depths of 2-90ft the past two weeks. Find the bait and use your electronics to find the feeding fish. We're using 8/0 Double Action hooks from Team catfish using a 50 pound mono leader, swivel, sinker slide and bumper with a 3oz sinker on our 65 pound braid. We're also using a 3" slotted bobber to get baits off the bottom. Some days, they want small baits, other days big baits. We put an assortment out until the fish tell us what they want.

Crappie have been good in docks and a few pieces of brush. We haven't seen them make a big move yet towards pre-spawning areas, but they should be doing that any day now with our warm temps. We've been using both Crappie Kickers and Lead Free Jigs from Fle-Fly. The colors and sizes the fish have wanted seem to be changing on the hour. We've been running two jigs on dropper loops and finding out the depths and colors they want. If the bite slows down, change colors and/or depths. Remember, crappie love the shade.

White Bass are staging in the creeks and rivers. It's time to get the GoGo Minnows out there on 1/8 ounce jig heads. Find them on your electronics and vary retrieves until they tell you want they want. I'll run two in different colors/sizes most of the time.

Spoonbill / Paddlefish are making a migration towards the rivers. Some are already up and they're scattered all the way down past Shangri-La. If we get a good rain look for them to make a major push up to the rivers.

What a mild winter so far on the beautiful shores of Grand Lake. Lake level is back to normal winter elevation @ 742.07. Water temperatures have increased to around 45-47 degrees due to warm past temperatures.

Spoonbill fish as been good overall with large fish being caught from mid-lake to up the rivers. We have noticed a great spawn the past two years as we are seeing large numbers of juvenile spoonbill this year. If your looking for a great hook for snagging, grab a box of Spoonbill King Hooks as we use this great made sharp hook daily.

Catfishing has been fair to good. Days after a cold front has soften the bite. We have been using small cut shad with the Team Catfish Super J Hook for this soft bite. We are targeting fish from 12-38 ft of water as the shad is moving around on the north end of the lake. This is a great time of year to load up the freezer for that spring fish fry.

Crappie is really good in docks around the lake. Great reports coming in lake wide as the crappie have been around 25 ft of water. The nice warm days they have moved up to 8-12ft of water. 2 1/2 Go Go minnows are some of our favorites as water up lake is a bit stained.

Don't forget to grab some 1 Step Marinated for some great tasting fish and meats!

Check out your local sports dealers for all these great products we use daily!

Good luck fishing and Catch The Excitement

Water 44
Water murky North clear South.
Spoonbill good near mouth of Elk River.
Catfishing good across lake on shad with dead red spray.
Crappie good in docks and river channel edges around brush. 2.5 crappie kickers in buster brown with chartreuse 1/8 oz big eye head has been best. 1/8 big eye pink with firecracker crappie kicker has been productive in clear water.
White Bass slow in river because of muddy water. As soon as it clears chartreuse and lemon pie go go minnows will be the good choices.
