Hello All,

I've been at Lake Champion for the last two weekends. Wind has blown like crazy both times but the morning fishing has not been bad. My son and I went this last Sunday, we drove down early in the morning and had a good hour of fishing before the wind picked up way too much. We caught some nice fish between 6:30 and 7:30AM. Hardly anyone was on the lake, the fish were up in six to ten feet of water. Water temps are still in the low to mid 50's. Week before last I saw some high 50's. you can see fish sitting just off the shallow water near the channel. [Linked Image]

Hope your lines are tight and the fishing is good..

Taking a few small fish home from this lake is a good thing IMO. All the fish are stunted, there are no good fish on the lake, no need for everyone to travel there and waste their time.

Given what I have seen, in two weekends a total of 8 boats on the water, I don't think that the fish are in any threat of being fished out of the lake. I keep very few of what I catch, I do tend to keep two or three fish just over the legal length. I turned the bigger fish loose and only kept enough to for my family to have a nice meal. I prefer crappie but I have not had good luck on that lake fishing for them and catching them of any size. I have caught more than a few in the effort, in that effort I have caught only one that I could keep out of the 50 or more that I have caught recently. I have heard rumors there are some good fish in the lake, the temps are still low for spawn but the fish are prepped for it once water temperatures come up. I grew up fishing and hunting to eat, it beats the processed poison you buy in the stores. The lake had an algae kill about 8 years ago, it has been coming back nicely. I heard from the game warden there may be some 8 or 9 pound fish this year. Not huge fish, but a good sign that the fish population is healthy and aging nicely.

Douglas, if you figure out where the crappie are, I would sure appreciate some input.

Thanks,
David
