Rend Lake Fishing Report

Crappie fishing
- good, using jigs. The fish are starting to move into a prespawn pattern and biting very good. We are catching crappie in structure in 8-16 feet of water on secondary points close to shallow spawning areas. The bridge bite is good right now as well.

Cat fish - good, cut shad and worms, fishing the deep main lake river channels and in the stumps. 

Bass- fair, worms, rattle traps, crank baits, Jig&trailer.  Fish around brush, bridges, lay downs, rip rap, weed beds, and drop off's.   

White bass- slow, Jig and curly tail grubs, inline spinners. Look for them on main lake humps,  drop offs and around the 154 bridges.  

Bluegill- slow, Look in the back of necks and on flat shallow banks and on the rocks.  Fish shallow with crickets, worms or small jigs.

Don't miss out! The winter is cold but the bite is HOT!
ive me a call to get in on the action.
