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 Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Lake Lure Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 65 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn.

Lake Lure Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

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!
