Water Temperature:
The reports here are Laughable(site report, not other fishermens real time experiences) bass down south don't stop biting bc of the heat! Bass have to support their higher metabolic rate spurred on by the higher water temps. Sure, the bite CHANGES, when it gets hot but the durn things gotta eat and warmer water down here means an aggressive need to feed. Top waters are good early and evening, also hit em on black/blue combo jigs. Spend time finding the schools of bait fish. Best success is always fishing parallel to bank, bass will feed up so no need to be on the bottom. Suspending cranks do well especially along rocky edges that lead around main creek channel flows. Look for quality on this lake, not quantity. Green pumpkin finesse worms can trigger bites in the heat of the day. I test lures for 30 mins once I find em, then tweak one variable at a time (color, size, type). Stay focused and you can zone in on what they want for a particular day.

10/2/14: Water temp 76.6 not 67 as stated in fishing report. Went this AM. Could find plenty of fish but bite very poor. Most fish are still in the main channel and at 15 to 25 feet deep around/in schools of bait fish. E.H.T.

Badin Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
72 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.

Badin Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- There are NO walleye in Badin Lake.
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.

Badin Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Badin Lake Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Stripers are still deep, best tecnique is to pull unbralla rigs between 20 and 30 ft. Some verticle jigging is another good way to pick up these fish.

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!
