Fishing Rating: 5
Water Temperature:
There are large catfish off the west boat ramp jUst to the left. You have to use bloody anchovies or shad and cast really far out. We have been using large sea fishing poles so we get out a lot farther then most from the shore. You have to find the warm pockEts in the water. TRy fishing from 11am to about 3 pm in this area. We brought home an average of 5 before we went bass fishing. There Are a lot of good size bass out there but they are all close to the shore. We have been getting the limit in less then an hour all about the limit. You have to hit the areas that have the most brush and and cover. The north side of the lake has huge bass. Also around the island, You can see them from the peak. You have to find the right jig. The big fish Ares big for a reason. They have seen most lures out there. TRy some classic lures that fish always love

Water Temperature:
"Lots of small bass 5-10"" hitting large rattle traps aggressively from the bank mid-day (hooked over 20 between 4-5PM). Not a single one was legal size. Boaters said they were having similar results off various baits. Triad catfishing with cutbait and liver from 10PM to 2AM and absolutely nothing. If anyone is catching catfish in this lake, or decent size bass, please report some details here."

"7/2/10-7/3/10 3 of us fished from 6:00pm - 1:00am.Very tough. Had one hook up, and one bite on brushhog. Crawdads did not produce. Fish are suspended in 25-50ft of water near dropoffs and rock banks due to water temp increase."

"07-06-10 Fished a small tournament with 11 fishermen from 6:00pm-9:00pm. None weighed in a keeper fish. Fish are still suspended over deep water and not feeding agressively. Tried many types of baits- Cranks, Worms, Jigs, Swim baits, But nothing produced a strike. Good Luck to everyone..."

Lake Success Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
77 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.
Lake Success Smallmouth Bass Rating:
2.5
Lake Success Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- there r no smallmouth in this lake
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new 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.
