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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
