Lake of Egypt Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- A friend of mine and I decided to try our hand at this species of fish. Salamon fishermen at heart, I purchased a boat that had the name of said species in its title. It was 20 feet long with a 225 horsepower Mercury engine. After an 8 hour drive south, we arrived at this lake. We launched the boat and were quickly on our way. With the boat at maximum speed, I found what looked to be a promising cove. I quickly turned the boat into it. Suddenly, the boat came to a halt, sending my friend and myself flying out of the boat. When we were finally able to swim to the surface, we saw my beautiful new boat sinking from site. We were rescued by another boater and taken back to my vehicle. For some reason, we were told we struck a stump. We are still trying to figure out why someone cuts a tree in the middle of a lake. I lost my boat. Avoid this lake at all cost!
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 82 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!
