Water Temperature: 30
Big Blue Cats are tearing it up if those d--n bass fishers will quit riding through your fishing gear at full blast. I hope the next time one of you do that your motor gets locked up with my noodles. I think their mad because they fish all day and catch nothing but a sore arm while we are stocking the freezer with yummy blue cats-best eating fish ever. We fished 3/27/14 for 4 hours and caught several 30-40 pounders.

Lake Gaston Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Gaston at 56 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie fishing should be getting good to great now. Crappie function excellent in 56 degree water. Crappie will be nicely bunched up still and moving more aggresively than when the water temperature is in the 35 to 50 degree range. With baitfish getting more active, the crappie fishing will be good. Good luck today!

Lake Gaston Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- went out about 1 mile west of damn large minnows from washburns...put 1 1/2 ounce sinker on and number 4 hook...turned boat off and drifted... letting bait go down close to bottom...caught 4 very good sized cats in about a hour...
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.
