    Default Fishing Reelfoot Lake Tenn.

    I would like to see if I would get some information on fishing Reelfoot lake the 1st week of April. I retired in Jan. and for my retirement trip myself and 3 others will be coming down to Reelfoot lake to try and catch some nice crappies. Any advise I could get would be greatly appreciated. Such as tackle jig and so on.

    Thank you

    Are you bringing your boats or renting?

    Would be worth it to hire a guide for the first day. He should show you where and how.
    Book guide, rooms very soon!!!!

    We will be renting a boat. We are staying at one of the resorts which included the fishing package. I understand that there are some very good guides down the and I will be getting in touch with them. Any suggestions or pointer would be greatly appreciated.

    By that time of the year and in addition to the guide info, should be plenty of boats to see what and where the fish are doing/going.
    Also, check to see if they provide trolling motor and battery.

    If you are interested in catching fish I would hire a guide. If you just want to putter around depending on which resort you are staying I can probably give you some advice on which area close to try. You won’t be able to go very far from the resort. I would plan on bringing long jigging poles and jigs with chartreuse. A trolling motor is a necessity unless you like padding from tree to tree like the old days!

    Newbie here. Coming down in mid march with my own boat. Hiring a guide for first day. Question is, not much for spider rigging. Does single pole use give us a chance at fish or do not many people fish like this down there? Thanks in advance for comments.

    We are staying at Cypress Resort. They do rent a trolling motors which we will be renting every day. I have been watching you tube videos and they seem to fish a lot around the cypress trees. I really appreciate you sharing that insight.

    I went there one year in March and rented a Jon boat with the 10 hp motor on it. At that time it was cold and the fish were still in deeper water and there were about 50 or 60 boats congregated over what I think they call the blue hole. I went out there, kept a decent distance from other boats, and drifted jigs and minnows for a few hour with single pole. Me and my buddy managed to catch about 20 good crappie that way, so multiple poles are not necessary, but certainly would be more productive. If we warm up early this year, the fish could be up in the pad stems, in which case single pole casting jigs through the pad stems is the way to go anyway. The guide will almost certainly know where the fish are and what techniques will be working.
