Pymatuning Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Lake is a little low, but the largemouth have moved onto the wood up north. Launched at Wilsons
and covered a lot of shoreline. Big ones are up already not just little bank runners. Caught 1 4lber, a
three 3lbers and lots of other solid fish. Lost a big one too. 11 fish caught in 4 hours. Flipped
Beavers on the wood. 4/0 Gamakatsu EWG, Stren Super Braid 50lb test. Water color looks good,
the rains should help raise water level and bring more fish up. Water temps up north 44-45.

Pymatuning Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This seems crazy, but last April around the 10th or so, I was out there with my son fishing for bass. I'm throw a jig around and he pulls out a topwater, after a quick tutorial as to why that wouldn't catch fish this time of year, he was stubborn enough to use it anyway because it was "neat". He caught 6 smallmouth with that thing before I was stubborn enough to switch. We had a heck of a day, went out the next day and did okay with it again but not as good. We were throwing Rebel Pop R's skittering them across the surface. Just work down the bank casting, we caught a couple largemouth too. I can't wait until April, it's almost here.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 48 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.

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.
Pymatuning Lake Walleye Fishing

Pymatuning Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I don't know what happened but I have been catching the walleye pretty good off the humps in the north end of the lake then the smallmouth moved in and I haven't been able to catch an 'eye off them. The talk at the launch is that the walleye are shallower in around 4 - 6 feet of water. People are having success with nightcrawlers.
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye spawn is in full swing now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Try throwing reaction type baits up in the shallows. Rip-Rap, damns, rocky bottom points are perfect to hit. Try fishing some faster crank baits and spinners this time of year. As always fall back to the standard walleye fishing tactics, but it won?t hurt bringing out the bass gear in search for spawning walleyes. In this water temperature, always be safe on the water.
Pymatuning Lake Catfish Fishing

Pymatuning Lake 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.
Pymatuning Lake Spotted Bass Fishing

Pymatuning Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Pymatuning Lake at 48 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Spotted 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. Spottted Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Pymatuning Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
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.
