Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
67 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.

Belleville Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- When water tempatures reach 50-60 degrees crappie fishing will be at its best for the year. The second week of April usually is a good time to head out and see if the spawn has started in the shallows. This lake is plentiful with black and white crappie. The docs at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is the best place to fish on the lake if your a shore fisherman. Lure that always works is called "PANFISH ASSASIGN" , or any shad minnow imatation will work. Colors that have always worked are blue, black, white, green&red. You can find this lure at a bait shop called "BOTTOM LINE" located in Rockwood,MI. Using this on a jig head and casting 10ft out and dragging back to the bank always works great , you'll hit your limit of 25 crappie usually in 2 hours. I've crappie fished Belleville Lake for about 15 years I've used just about everything... trust me it's worth the drive to go pick up a pack of "PAN FISH ASSASIGNS" you'll never use live bait again!
Average size you"ll catch is 7-10 inches.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
