The fish on the southern end of the lake are spawning or have already spawned. The bass in the middle to northern end of teh lake are still going through the motions. Use a lizard, shakey head with a trick worm, or a wild colored foating worm to entice a strike.
Species: Largemouth Bass
Fishing Rating: 4
Water Temperature:
March 30, 2013 water temp 52-56 degrees, stained. I concentrated in the middle section of the lake. The bass have not gone to bed for the spawn in full force yet. Just starting to see a few bedded bass. The majority of active fish are on the closest ambush point near the bedding areas waiting for a meal to come by. Believe it or not, top water plugs and shallow running crank baits are the ticket. Fished a tourney Saturday and came in the money with 13 lbs and change. Caught 15 bass or so and culled a few times. The full spawn is just around the corner

Lake Wylie Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The buck bass are starting to create and guard the beds for the spawn. Water temp is around 58 to 62 degrees.I have been catching them on a shakey head with a trick worm from inches of water to 6 feet. Spinner baits, texas rigged lizards, and square bill crank baits are good too.It may take multiple cast to the same spot in order to agravate a bedding bass to bite.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
In the 64 degrees range, spotted bass are generally their most active at this water temperature. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the spotted bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
