Typically the bite really picks up in October when the water temp cools into the 60's and stays good until the lake ice's up. 

Rend and shelbyville are both good lakes but fish a lot differently.

Is there a time in the fall that the crappie get real active at Rend?  If so, is there a time when they slow back down?  (November ? December?)  Thanks. Also, is Rend and Shelbyville comparable in crappie fishing success?

Thank you for any info.

With the 10+ inches of rain last weekend Rend has come up right at 3' but the fish are still biting. Catching fish best on jigs in 6' to 10'. Have a couple days open next week and 4 or 5 days left in October and November.  Call to set up your trip 618-472-4763. 

I also offer duck hunts and conservation season snow goose hunts in Northeast Arkansas call for more information.

Crappie bite is still good. Been fishing 6 to 10 foot of water with jigs or minnows.  We have a few days left in August and September of you would like to get in on some end of summer fishing. We also have very limited days left for the fall bite in October and November call now before we book up. 618-472-4763 for Nick or 618-231-1417 for Bob. 


Channel catfish are also going good using triple S stink bait around drops and structure.

Not really.  Most of the bank fishermen have some success around the docks at the resort or sailboat harbor but that is usually later in the fall and into the winter.

Crappie fishing is good using minnows or jigs around structure in 5 to 12 foot of water. 

Channel catfish are also hitting very good using stink bait around structure and dropoffs. 

We still have some days available in August and September for crappie or catfish. We also have very few October and November crappie dates left so call now to book your days! 618-472-4763
