Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 62 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.

Chisago Lake Crappie Rating:
Chisago Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Theres a good crappie population in the eight to nine inch range with the occasional ten incher. They like to sit off the weed edge in fifteen plus feet during the day and come in to the weed beds feeding on the surface during prime hours. During winter theres a good night bite were most of the crappies in the lake are harvested. You will find them in twenty plus feet of water.
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!
Chisago Lake Walleye Rating:
Chisago Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- walleye fishing can be good in this lake if u offer the right presentations. Chisago has a lot of fishing pressure so the walleyes have seen it all. Live bait seems to be the best option but soft plastics and artificals do have there place look off of the sand bars and weed edges throughout the open water months and during the winter look for walleyes in the deepest basins close to bait fish populations,they will then come into the shallows at dawn and dusk for a short time to feed then head back out to deep water. The walleyes in this lake are constantly moving throughout the day time hours and joining up for the night and morning feed. There are some big ones.
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!
Chisago Lake Catfish Rating:
Chisago 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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new 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.
