Prado Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.
Prado Lake Walleye Fishing

Prado Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- In the early spring, the Walleye are right close to shore or congregating around
areas with sand like a sand bar or a Wild Rice bed with a sandy bottom. They
will also be found in the weeds or around rocky point, which are close to an
area with sand. The location of sand is very important because that's where they
spawn. They will also spawn in river current. At this time of year the Walleyes
are very aggressive and will hit just about any lure.

When the water starts to warm up, you will find that the Walleyes will go a
little deeper or hide in the thick weeds. At this time of year, jigs with white
twistertails are the best. You can try other colors but white is what works best
in the far north so make sure you bring lots of them. Bring unscented
twistertails. The scented Power Baits do not work in the north. Buy unscented
tristertails and do not spray scent on your lures. Salted baits do work well in
the north and so do salted minnows.

Prado Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Prado 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.
