Seasonal Fishing
Winter (November to March)
I consider this the multi-species season on Bull Shoals Lake. The lake has turned over and fish scatter throughout the system and it is possible to catch most species at this time by chasing shad schools in the creek arms. Crappie fishing can be very good at times during this time of the year as well. You just never know what the next bite will be.

Spring (April to June)
The walleye spawning is in the final stages at this time and I start casting and trolling crankbaits, mostly for walleye. The Black Bass and Crappie fishing can be outstanding as well.

Summer (June to October)
This is when the thermocline sets back up. I like to target walleyes mostly when this occurs. While fishing the thermocline for Walleye a mixed bag of fish can be caught. Mostly all species of fish have set up along this temperature change during this time of year.

**Fishing methods can vary due to fluctuating water levels of the lake**
