Fishing Report, 16-22 Jan
Updated: Sun Jan 21, 2018
Fishing report, 16-22 Jan. As the record cold ended, a new crappie pattern emerged. The fish moved a little deeper than they had been holding, and have been biting a little deeper.In our cold weather time, usually December and January, crappie move into the deepest parts of their area of the lake, their metabolism slows way down, and they feed a lot less than they do during the warmer periods. The bite tends to be much softer, and often it takes minnows or Crappie Nibbles to get them to bite. The depth that they suspend is usually 22 feet or more for Lake Palestine, and down at the dam end they are often seen holding in the 35 feet range.Usually when they are holding at their maximum depth, they don't bite down there, they rise up to the more oxygenated depths where the shad and other forage can be found. What has been reported around the Hwy 155 big bridge and the Neches channel holes near the Villages is crappie biting in the deepest water they can get into, and biting right on the bottom.Down in the dam area they have been biting as deep as 30 feet, where that bite usually occurs around 20-25 feet.Minnows have been the most productive, which has also led to a few pretty good blue cat catches..
