Prado Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Prado Lake at 42 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.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 42 degrees. 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 smallmouth.

Prado Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will just be starting their migrating runs from deep river channels toward major tributaries. They will suspend in open water and channels in deep water and cover on the break lines. Crappie will stage off primary and secondary points this time of year while they are getting ready for spawn. Make sure you don?t forget the river channels, especially with structure and sharp breaks in deep water. Some crappy will hang back in this area waiting to come up to the staging areas. Drifting and slow (REALLY SLOW) trolling with jigs and other artificials work great this time of year. Always look for baitfish schools and concentrate more time when you see the bait.

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.
