Species: Largemouth Bass
Fishing Rating: 3
Water Temperature: 68
Caught some LM chasing minnows and always by weedbeds. We fished mostly the very upper part of the lake on the MN side. The best fishing was around small current breaks with weeds and especially when we saw minnows being chased.

Prior Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Prior Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- lots of 12 inch fish very few 34 and five pounders it'll take a couple years till it gets good again
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
75 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.
Prior Lake Smallmouth Bass Rating:
1.5
Prior Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- look for riprap and fallen trees and stay for about 4 to 5 casts then move on
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.
Prior Lake Crappie Rating:
3
Prior Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Croppie numbers are way down
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.
Prior Lake Walleye Rating:
3.5
Prior Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- wait til opener
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.
Prior Lake Catfish Rating:
2
Prior Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- use big bait because most catfish have big mouths I recamend anything big that smells bad and has a really strong smell
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. Itís perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

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.
