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!

Free Fishing Days, June 1st & 2nd

Oklahoma anglers can fish for free during Free Fishing Days June 1-2.  During these days, a state fishing license will not be required for anglers.

Oklahoma was the first state in the nation to offer free fishing days about 30 years ago and has since been followed by dozens of other states that have established similar days.

Oklahoma Fishing Regulation Changes for 2012

Before heading out to the lake this season, make sure to brush up on the latest changes to the fishing regulations for the Oklahoma lakes listed below:

  • The 13-16-inch slot length limit on large and smallmouth bass at Lake Elmer Thomas was deleted to help increase opportunity for anglers to harvest what is currently a surplus of fish.
  • All the ponds on the Black Kettle National grasslands were added to the list of lakes with a 14-inch length limit on black bass.
  • All Sooner Lake anglers must immediately release all striped bass under 20 inches in length to help manage the fishery for trophy striper fishing opportunities.
  • The daily limit on striped bass at five daily statewide except at Lake Texoma where limits would remain at 10 daily with no more than two measuring greater than 20 inches.
  • Kaw Lake anglers can keep up to 20 striped bass hybrids and/or white bass combined, with no more than five over 20 inches in length. 

Holiday fishing report (Tom Steed)

Since I don’t usually venture out on the lake during busy holidays I thought I would sneak out on Friday for just a short cruise and a few minutes of trolling. Today was my Granddaughters first time on the boat and my Daughter went with us as well. We enjoyed a nice cruise together and then spent 40 minutes trolling through some of my honey holes. All I can say is wow. Within three minutes we had our first hybrid and the kids liked that. For the next 35 minutes we enjoyed the lake and pulled three nice crappie and two more hybrids and then headed in before the boat traffic picked up. Nice crappie can still be caught (See picture) as well as hybrid and catfish are biting. Enjoy the weekend and please be safe. Mike
