Species: Largemouth Bass
Fishing Rating: 1
Water Temperature: 83
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

Today the crappie were really hitting better than expected.One of the best things that has been good for me is a bobber with a red hook right under the dock.

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):
With Fort Loudon Lake at 50 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.

Fort Loudon Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Use minnows on a straight line rig with split shot in deep waters and you will be able to feed your poor family.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the Water Temperature at 50 all crappie should be up in their spawning areas now and spawn should be getting started. There will be a few few still in the deeps and prespawn areas, but a majority should be up getting ready or already spawning. Continue to hit the creek channels on the migration routes. Focus on isolated cover in a little shallower water. No need to get crazy shallow but start focusing on 15 feet or less of water. On warmer sunny days if the water is still at 50 you should attempt to bounce back and forth from 5-15 feet of water to attempt nailing a solid pattern fo r the day. Try a Kentucky rig baited with minnow, tube bait and small jigs.

Fort Loudon Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.

Fort Loudon Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- If straight lining for channel catfish have a 2/0 hook with a foot long litter a 20 lb. swivel a bead and a 2 oz sinker, basicly it's a Carolina rig.

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.

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.
