Black bass fishing is good to excellent. Late in the evening is your best time of day. Start out in the mouths of the creeks and work your way back. Lake is at full level and slot of brush that grew while the lake was down is now under water. Log jams and trees that have fallen in or drifted in to the creeks are holding fish. Fish slow with a light Texas rigged greenpumkin lizard. Tail dipped in char truce dye. Or slow roll a double willow leaf gold spinnerbait. Char truce and white skirt with a char truce grub as a trailer. A stinger hook is a good bet for short strikers. Heavy line is recommended....Dan

Benbrook Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Mid February slow roll spinnerbaits in the mouth of all creeks. Be patient the bass are there. Late
in the day is the most active bite. Double willow leaf gold blades with a white and char truce skirt.
Add a char truce grub trailer with a stinger hook for short stickers. Large line is recommended. This
lake has ten pounders. Good luck.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 65 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie will be coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding much more aggressively making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Crappie will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into schools again in the old river channels. It?s time to hit the water. Have fun today!

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

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.
