Little Seneca Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
At 56 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Little Seneca Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I was up at the Lake fishing for a few hours yesterday. Water temp was 63. and caught two Largemouth and 3 Smallmouth from the shore. Smallmouth were ten feet from the shore in 2-3\' of water. I used live green worms and caught 6-8 perch, bluegill, but could see the bass weren\'t hitting the live green worms. So I switched to a Carolina rig setup with glass bead and a #1 Gamakatsu Worm Hook with a Watermelon Red Zoom bait, but bit off 25% of the worm (head end) to make it a little smaller. I cast it out 10\' feet and dragged it slowly along thwe bottom. Within 90 seconds each time, I had Smallmouth and Largemouth, 10\" smallest to 18\" largest. They were very aggressive with the right kind of presentation.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperature at 56 degrees smallmouth bass fishing is ready to heat up for spring. The bass will be starting to move into their spawning area. Smallmouth bass will generally spawn on rock and gravel bottoms that are protected from the elements. It's time to get fishing and look for staging bass in deeper water.

Little Seneca Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If the water temperature is low, jogging at the bridge is very good. Me and my buddy go out jogging anything flashy out of his kayak. We catch a lot of crappie anywhere from 5 to 50

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Little Seneca Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Little Seneca 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.

Little Seneca Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Ain\'t no trouts in he-uh, good buddy. Too hot for natural reproduction (est. 83 degrees at the moment, 23 July 2013); and the State (MD DNR) doesn\'t stock this water - or any other lake, pond, or stream in the county.

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!
