Memorial Day Weekend Fishing at Grand Lake Oklahoma

Map of Grand Lake Oklahoma Map of Grand Lake Oklahoma

Another great bass fishing spot here in the Midwest is Grand Lake in Oklahoma.  It was the first lake hit by the BassMaster tournament this year and will be a spot many head to for this Memorial Day Weekend.  We at Shotem and Caughtem did a little fishing homework for you.  

The Crappie spawn is about over which means that it is about ready to be prime crappie fishing.  Crappie have been hitting on live bait and shallow spinners.  Weather conditions look to be nice in the mid 80's but a chance of rain Sunday and Monday.  Fish seem to be biting early mornings and mid evenings with a small window right after lunch.  Lake levels are good and reports show that many areas are clearing up.  Catfish have been hitting on Shad.  Bass have been hitting on worms, shad and top water baits.  Bass fishing has been spotty but what bites have been happening have been well worth the wait.  Water temperatures are hovering in the mid to low 60's dependant on time of day.  

Let us know how your fishing trip goes this weekend in the comment section below and as always post photos to the Caughtem Gallery and tell us your story. Most of all have a safe and fun holiday Shotem and Caughtem weekend!
