Caught the limit but all were small, one good one that was 13 inches. They are in the buck brush but can't find the big ones.

CONDITIONS
Raining
This is a little late. Got sick from fishing in the rain for 2 days. Fished the 7 and 8. We are from Wisconsin. Got sick of looking at 44 inches of ice. So we came down here and looked at 44 inches of rain. It rained 9 inches just before we got there and the lake went up 3 feet. solid mud, maybe 2 inches of visibility. The wild life was worth the trip. Saw 50 deer at one time standing in one field. Saw over two hundred. Saw pheasants, foxes and rabbits. Tons of birds. As bad as it was. We still caught close to a hundred crappies in 3 days. Found a few bays with 56 to 58 degree water. The biggest fish were right in the middle of the biggest bushes. Smaller fish on the out side of the bushes.

Water temp was 46 today. The cold weather won't go away. I had 31 keepers in 8 hours today. Conditions are tough but should get better soon. Clint

Great News!! Ice is off the main part of the lake, but many coves and boat ramps still have ice. The gun creek boat ramp is open.

Crappie: The bite is slow, but fish can be caught on brush piles in 10-15 feet of water and under bridges. The Gun Creek and the Sailboat harbor bridge are the best right now. The fish I caught yesterday came on 3/32 red/chartreuse jigs.

I will report on more species as the water warms and people begin to fish for them. Cool

Rend Lake is frozen harder than I have seen it for a long time. With the weather forecasts I wouldn't be surprised if the lake was frozen until the end of February. I will post as soon as the lake opens back up. The Crappie got to be hungry. LOL. If your thinking of booking a spring spawn fishing trip call me 618.731.0323 and I will set you up. We partner with area resorts to offer discounted lodging. $65-$70 a night!!. Thank you Clint Taylor Smile

Rend Lake is currently froze..Next weeks temperatures are forecasted to be very low. I am expecting the lake to be frozen for at least a couple more weeks. Crappie Xtreme will be at the outdoor sports show in Rosemont Illinois next weds-sun. Even thought we cant fish right now stop by and see us and we can talk about it. I cant wait for spring.....

Rend lake crappie fishing report. 12/08/13 Book your spring crappie fishing trip now!! We offer Christmas gift certificates. The crappie bite is good. BIG fish are biting. The fall feeding frenzy is winding down, but the bite is still very good. This is the time of year almost everyone on the lake is after a mess of crappie. Lots of big fish are caught in the winter. Currently fish are being caught in deeper water around 8-14 feet of water. Some fish are being caught under the bridges and along the rocks. Fish about a foot off the bottom. If the water in 10 foot fish about 9 foot. Crappies eyes are towards the top of their bodies. They can not see down. they can only see up. If your fishing blow them you will not catch them. Brush piles and stake beds are producing big fish. Jigs are producing the best bite. My color choice of jig on Rend lake is a red/chart in 1.5 - 2.0 inch Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile
