Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Wilson Lake at 48 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Smallmouth 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. Smallmouth 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):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

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 arent 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 Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
