- For your best chances at catching a Smallmouth Bass in the 2-5 pound range, your best bet would be to fish around vegetation,fallen trees or drop offs with Swimming shads a Rattle Trap that resembles a real shad or a bluegill all with a stop and go retrieve or just a simple steady retrieve. The best bet for live bait would be a Large Shiner with a split shot or a crayfish.

Liberty Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- For best walleye fishing use small bright colored lures near rocky areas where water drops from shallow to deep. Fish early in the morning or late in the evening. When using live bait try minnows or worms on the bottom.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

- 1. Make sure your drag is set can always tighten it.
2. I've had 20lb test snapped 3 times in this reservoir using a panfish the size of your hand as bait. No weight needed if you can cast far enough. The bait should settle down to the thermocline if the hook isn't too heavy.
3. Super bait....Liver. Again, no weight needed. The stripers are light hitters when it comes to liver. The trick with liver is, tie your hooks on a long leader several days in advance. Put liver on the hooks and place on wax paper on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer. You can throw that bait a country mile and when it settles to the bottom, it will thaw and be pristine.
4. Be patient...

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
