Hyco is a great bass producing lake if you just learn to fish it right. That\'s all there is to it. Check out the Piedmont Bass Classics~CBS Quality Cars Hyco Lake Open results from March 9th, 2013. There\'s nothing wrong with this lake. Keep practicing and you will catch them! http://www.piedmontbassclassics.com/2013HycoOpenMainPage.html

I haven\'t fished this month, but all these comments about no big bass left in the lake are completely off. Either you\'re fishing in the wrong areas, or you\'re not fishing the right baits. There was days this summer where in an hour we boated 40+ schooling fish. Over this summer alone, my fishing partners and i caught 4 fish in the 8+ lb range with all fish over 24 inches long, with the biggest being 25.5. We also caught around 10 fish in the 5+ lb range. We caught them in all parts of the lake also. I will say with the water being so clear in the north end of the lake you must use fluorocarbon with long casts, in the south end braided line and pitching is fine because the water is much darker. Our biggest fish were also caught on spooks, square bills, deep cranks, and shakey head worms, with the other nice bass being caught on every bait I have in my tackle box. So obviously people aren\'t fishing correctly or don\'t understand how to pattern the bass on this lake. I\'m obviously not going to say exactly where I caught most of the fish but they\'re definitely there. Someone also made a comment about the lack of crappie, but I caught limits of crappie under our dock every day this spring. If you guys think the lake sucks and don\'t want to fish it fine, means less boats for us to contend with, but I honestly find it hard to believe you guys can\'t catch keeper fish.

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.

- chum the area u plan to fish a day or two before hand with fish heads and guts from crappie and bluegills and creek chubs
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.

Hyco Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. 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. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
