Caught 10 large mouth yesterday. Mostly 1lb or smaller using pumpkin seed lizard and plastic worms, dual colorado blade spinnerbait in white and chatter minnow. Not too bad considering the windy conditions and cool water.

So far with the warmer water largemouth have been a little scarce. Have caught a few in 18-22 ft of water mostly on deep running Sexy Shad crankbaits and a few on the larger version of a Zoom brush-hog in watermelon spiked with garlic Spikte-It. J. Ruiz

Fort Loudon Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- forget the old wives tale of slow, and deep this time of year. young of the year shad are all over shallow flats, and in the backs of the creeks. target shallow cover with buzzbaits, jigs, and small square bill crank baits in shad patterns. good fishing...

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
75 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Fort Loudon Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Fort Loudon Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

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.
