The fishing has been outstanding on Lake Lure over the last week. Largemouth bass are aggressively hitting shad raps, jerk baits, and rattle traps along the creek basins in the back bays. Fish are holding on these edges in 8 - 20 foot water. For yellow perch, fish the 5 - 10 foot weedy bays with worms or minnows under a cork. You will also pick up some bull bluegill doing this. Smallmouth bass are holding where he Rocky Broad River flows into the lake. They love their crankbaits. White bass will start showing up in mid May and last until the end of July as they blitz the bait near main lake points. Book a trip aboard Lake Lure Fishing Excursions today! The fishing is hot and the lake is beautiful as always.

Lake Lure Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

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!
