It was pretty hot yesterday on the lake. We took the boat out and caught around 50 stripe. They were small though. We were running out of night crawlers (after breaking them in small pieces) so my dad threw his line over with nothing on the hook and jokingly said, “I bet they’d bite a bare hook”… and they did!!! We also caught a small catfish and a good size crappie. We had an excellent day of fishing!

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
77 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.
Woods Reservoir Smallmouth Bass Rating:
2.2
Woods Reservoir 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.
Woods Reservoir Crappie Rating:
3.6
Woods Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappie also like small meal worms or pieces of nightcrawlers and esp. black crickets as far as live bait.I\'ve bought white crickets at the local stores near Woods Reservoir in Tennessee but their so small I couldn\'t even keep them on the hook.Black Crickets are the best live bait or cut up night crawlers.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.
Woods Reservoir Walleye Rating:
3.1
Woods Reservoir 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.
Woods Reservoir Catfish Rating:
3.8
Woods Reservoir Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Use chicken livers
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The entire catfish family is very active and actively feeding in this water temperature. All catfish including blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish will be looking for their next meal. It’s perfect time to get on the water and fill the freezer. Good luck out there.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The full moon is right around the corner. The gravitational pull is starting to increase with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. 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. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
