    Crappie fishing is Great and most fish are on the main Coosa River channel ledges, in 12-16 feet of water on cover, and they can be caught spider rigging with live minnows, fished 2-4 feet above the bottom on a drop shot rig. Some fish are being caught under docks in the main lake, shooting jigs, a 1/24 ounce Jiffy Jig in colors JJ13 and JJ17 is working great.

    Striper fishing is Poor and there have been no reports of any catches in the last few weeks. Look for the Stripers to turn on again in late November or early December.

    Catfish are biting good in the flats on cut bait.
