Fished with grandson on Saturday, he caught one stripper, bunch of gills. Fishing is very slow, water warm. Caught more fish early.morning, less as the day went on. Try early or late in day but best for strippers, fish the night. We had a full moon also. Winds blowing in wrong directions or not at all. Wait for a cool down.

Lake Arthur Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This cove is a hotspot for bass at the time of year. Also kniown as trout cove this cove is a perfect plce to cast your bait out and make a slower reel because there is a lot of weeds there they will be hesitant ot come out of the weeds. Be careful when you come in though there are many other fish that are there and they will spook the bass if you disturb them. There is also good fishing for other common species.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Arthur at 41 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 41 degrees. It's time to fish deep and slow. Try some deep primary points, drop offs, and old river channels with rocks. Jigs, plastics and deep jerk baits will be your best bet to boat a smallmouth.

Lake Arthur Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This is a good spot for catfish as well as other species but the real fish that bites here is crappie and other panfish. Try anchored and just a worm all the way down or make a drift from one end of the island to the other. Also try drifting or anchored in the channel behind it.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Lake Arthur Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- fish the road beds this is where you will catch these ones,
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.
Lake Arthur Catfish Rating:

Lake Arthur Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This channel really is a good spot for the above average catfish that are in this lake. Since that clarity isn't that good you really need to get something that they can smell. Try just drifting in the channel or in frot of the island but once you get out there it is mostly large panfish.

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.
