twitches then reel up slack slowly.Cast near rock piles in shallow water near a drop-off.If the bite is
on wounded shiners use a Zoom Super Fluke.Use a jig and pig if the bite is on crawfish.If you
aren\'t sure use a worm first then minnow imitations then go from there.Try the stop and go retrieve

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Wilson Lake at 49 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Wilson Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- When fishing for crappie find the smallest possible bobber and fish weightless.Use a Gulp Alive!
maggot,worm,or 1\" minnow in emerald shiner.Put on a cricket hook as they tend to swallow it.The
longer shank makes it easier to take out.I also like using a bucktail 1/64 oz jig with the same small
bobber.Or a 1/8 oz Road Runner in black marabou or a 1/8 oz Rooster Tail in gray shiner.I
suggest an ultralite Ugly Stik with a Shimano Sonora 1000FD,then spool up with Berkley Trilene
Smooth Casting in 4 pound test (lo-vis green is best) also I only use a palomar knot.Don\'t
underestimate the strength,my dad caught a 26 pound catfish on this by mistake.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 49 all crappie should be up in their spawning areas now and spawn should be getting started. There will be a few few still in the deeps and prespawn areas, but a majority should be up getting ready or already spawning. Continue to hit the creek channels on the migration routes. Focus on isolated cover in a little shallower water. No need to get crazy shallow but start focusing on 15 feet or less of water. On warmer sunny days if the water is still at 49 you should attempt to bounce back and forth from 5-15 feet of water to attempt nailing a solid pattern fo r the day. Try a Kentucky rig baited with minnow, tube bait and small jigs.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Wilson Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Spotted bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature down this low. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a Spotted.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
