Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 37 degrees. If you have a chance to get out on the water, you are going to have to fish deep and slow. Jig fishing and Plastic baits may be your best bet this time of year for largemouth bass. You may also try fishing some sinking jerk baits.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 37 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.

Pymatuning Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Fished the stump area near the boat launch of Linesville Marina. Water temp was
around 60 degrees. Got on the water at 3:00 P.M. Nice sunny day. No rain. Light
breeze. Had to paddle the power boat about 100 yards from the marina before
being able to use the motor. I wish we had a trolling motor. Water level was
over 5 feet low. Was in 2 ft of water for about 100 yards out from the marina.
Weeds kept tangling the prop. Started to catch Crappie in 6 to 8 feet of water
with shiners and a 1/4 oz weight about 2 feet from the hook. Not too productive
of a day. Was able to keep one nice 2 lb.+ crappie. Used worms with no luck.
Also shallow diving jointed Rapala\'s in perch and fire tigre colors. Still no
luck. Saw one fisherman on lake in a John boat near us. Lake was very calm. Left
for the marina at 6:30 p.m. 200 ft from the boat launch, threw in a large silver
Zara Spook and worked the surface for about 20 minutes. Got some big strikes off
the surface but nothing caught. Lot\'s of minnows jumping wildly on the surface.
Lot\'s of surface action. Will try the Dam next week. My buddy fished the Dam
last week and caught 5 2-3 lb. perch. Nice keepers. Fished sunken humps about 20
ft. deep with shiners and jig rig.

I\'ll report back next week on our progress. I hope the lake recovers from it\'s
low levels by next Spring. The stump area is a very productive area for Walleye
and Musky in the Spring and mid-summer months.

Peace out and happy fishing everyone. :)

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 Reservoir Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Pymatuning Reservoir 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 Reservoir 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.
