Belleville Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Belleville Lake at 42 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 42 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.

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):
Crappie will just be starting their migrating runs from deep river channels toward major tributaries. They will suspend in open water and channels in deep water and cover on the break lines. Crappie will stage off primary and secondary points this time of year while they are getting ready for spawn. Make sure you don?t forget the river channels, especially with structure and sharp breaks in deep water. Some crappy will hang back in this area waiting to come up to the staging areas. Drifting and slow (REALLY SLOW) trolling with jigs and other artificials work great this time of year. Always look for baitfish schools and concentrate more time when you see the bait.

Belleville Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.

- No Blues here, jury out on whether there are Flatheads, but it IS Channel Cat heaven.
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.

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.
