Lake Mead Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I\'m from the East Coast where Carolina Rigs/Texas rigs reign supreme...the bass in this lake, however, loveeee Rattle traps especially when trolling close to shore.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 64 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.

Lake Mead Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Lake Mead Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- As the water warms up I see alot of fishermen losing their bait from the smallest strikes.Try threading your baits with an anchovie needle.Took me years to figure it out but an old timer showed me how and I catch alot more fish,because the bait tends to stay on when it's hot outside.So I spend a lot more time fishing than
baiting my hook!Only one place in vegas that Ive found that carries them LAKE MEAD BAIT AND TACKLE SHOP if your local and you fish you'll know where it's at!!!!!!
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
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.

Lake Mead Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Striped fishing has picked up. Head to the lake if you have been anxious to see those boils. The
mouth of boulder harbor has been successful with morning and late evening boils. Fish anything
that mimics a shad or any white topwater lure. The shad however, have been small but have been
showing up in abundant little schools throughout the shallows and coves. Watch for signs of
breaking water surface and diving birds.
Callville bay has been good as well. With boils here and there, you just need to look out to find
them or have the patience and they will show themselves to you.

Lake Mead Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full 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.
