Lake Broken Bow Crappie Fishing Report

The water temperature is 45 to 47 degrees
depending on where you’re at on the lake. The water clarity is clear on the
South end, but mid lake is cloudy to stained . The upper end of the lake is

Crappie fishing is currently slow. They are still in deep
water 30 to 55 feet deep. They are positioning out on main lake points, main lake
channels and bluff walls.  They are staging to move up to spawning flats as soon as
we get a warm spell which will start the spawn. 

This year I’m adding a Family Pontoon
Guide trip to my fishing guide services. There’s a 4 person minimum and we can take up to 8 people.  It will be more
 comfortable and I won’t have to hire another boat.  We can all stay together
for a family-oriented fishing trip! 

I have been working all winter setting out
brush piles and my technique is different from others.  I have
learned some tricks of my own over the years for making sure my brush holds lots of crappie.
Come fishing with me and I will share my technique with you.

fishing has really been very good this year.  I recently had a 12.39 lbs
bass boated during a tournament along with four other fish that weighed 3
lbs each with a total of five fish weighing 24.34 lbs – good enough to finish in 1st Place in a Tri-Lakes Bass  Tournament. 

Good bass between 3 lbs to 4.5 lbs have been biting all winter
long so come join me and you may catch the trophy of
your dreams. 

Sand Bass season is near.  In the next
few day the weather will start to warm.  When the water temperature reaches 50 to 52 degrees, the Sand Bass
run will be on and will last for about 3 weeks.  Lake Broken Bow has one of the best Sand Bass runs in the entire state.  Male sand bass come in around a pound and females around 2
to 3 lbs.  I will clean up to 20 sand bass for you.  You need to bring an ice chest if you want to keep all the sand bass you catch.  This is a great time of the year to
introduce kids to fishing. Just bring lots of warm clothes. It is a long ride
to where these fish are.

Walleye is the
best fresh water eating fish and beats crappie in opinion of most people.  May through July are the best walleye fishing months on Broken Bow and we catch up to 50
walleye a day.

Come fishing me!
