Fished the South bank with PB for Bows. Switched to small Super Duper and landed a "De-Liar"ed 1 1/2lb Black crappie. Soft grab but a nice battle.... [more]

Wiest Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This is Billy and judy we stay at Wiest lake a lot, nice camping at this lake.
The park rangers are verry friendly.
Any way I have cought some verry big large mouth bass in Wiest lake.
Drop shot fishing with a purple 6 to 8 in. worm works best.
A few lures work along the dock that dvides the swimming part from the
main lake.
Some rooster tails work but not all ways.
This is a heavly fished lake, lots of people here on the weakends.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
74 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.

Wiest Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

- Billy and judy again, Croppie fishing is best around the dock, try to cast
under the dock for best results,small white curly tail jigs, nightcrowlers
also work.
the big ones are under the dock.
Millworms also work.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

Wiest Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Trout in Wiest lake is seasonal, best time is when the water cools way down.
Fish and game will stock a lot of trout in the winter here a Wiest lake.
Catching trout at this lake is easy, power bait, last year it was rainbow
colors of this bait worked best with a cheese smell.
And yes I do have my favorite way of catching trout.
Think verry thin line no.6 hook and a nice nightcrowler.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. 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. Have a great day!
