I heard there has been a huge fish kill of tilapia in the lake due to the power plant hot water output being changed. Anyone seen this or heard the same report?

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.

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!
