Crankbaits Catch The Crappie! with #PFGFishing and my724outdoors.com!

Sometimes if you want to catch the crappie, you have to whip out the crankbaits! How about a flashback to some hot fishing last summer on the fourth of July! I go out and avoid the big lakes and have a grand old time pulling crankbaits at the old power plant lake!

Location: Coffeen Lake is located in southeast Montgomery County, seven miles southeast of Hillsboro, IL.

Description: Coffeen Lake is 1,102 acres with a shoreline length of 47.9 miles, a watershed of 11,001 acres, a maximum depth of 58 feet, and an average depth 18.7 feet. The lake is under a management agreement between The Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and AmerenUE for outdoor recreation and conservation purposes. The lake is a cooling facility for Ameren’s coal-fired power station.

Coffeen Lake has a 25 hp out-board motor limit. There are two concrete boat ramps, with one at the far north end of the lake, and the main ramp near the site office. There is no concession stand on the site, but gear can be acquired at a private business just west of the site office.

History and Status of the Sport Fishery: Approximately 20 species have been collected on this water body. Coffeen Lake now receives periodic stockings of black crappie; the pure striped bass stockings have been discontinued due to an increase in water temperatures.
