Fishing Rating: 1
Water Temperature: 78
Not so much a bass report but more so a chain pickerel report. I fished 2 days for bass with no luck. I did catch several chain pickerel. I used weightless senkos and top water poppers. Very exciting top water action working the outside edge of the mats. I caught a 2 pounder that came out of the water about 2 feet like a missile on the initial strike. Another one ate my senko and dove straight down until my 12 pound test line snapped.... Good luck folks!!! Catch one for me...

Lake Rim Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn.

This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Lake Rim 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:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
