Species: Crappie
Fishing Rating: 5
Water Temperature:
The fishing has been consistent through the month of March. Our guides have been able to put clients on fish every outing, but having to use a variety of techniques to be successful. The white perch have been spawning over the last 3 weeks but not all at once making the fish more scattered, and more difficult to fill the box. The size of the fish have been exceptionally large as expected for this time of year. If you would are interested in more information or booking a trip visit our website www.lartoguideservice.com

Water Temperature:
Larto lake was 3 feet below pool stage last time I post a report. But since then we have had a significant amount of rain and the lake is now about 1 foot above pool stage. The white perch are beginning to move up to spawn but the big females are still suspended out from the banks. Fishing has been good the past week. Over the weekend our guides had 2 very successful trips but fought the wind. The action is heating up and will just get better visit our website to get booking information.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 60 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Larto Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- For crappie here, the peak of the spawn can be from the end of february to the middle of march. It will be good fishing in the shallows through june. The best baits I have found are shiners(minnows) and hair jigs.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Larto Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The spotted bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

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!
