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
with soft plastics.Good luck and happy fishing!

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.

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 affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
