Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 80 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Pine Flat Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- catfish are heating up because I went there may 1st 2010 and caught 12 in 30min.Catfish are spawning this time so you can just go out there and find a spot where there is a lot of vegetation and flat planes under the water.
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Unlike most North American fish species, blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish are comfortable when the water temperature is this high. They will be feeding and moving in typical patterns. You will start having a little better luck if you can get to some moving water that is adding a little more oxygen for the baitfish and the catfish will be there also.

Pine Flat Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Spotted bass are mostly caught around March through May and where there are many bait fish. They will often bite around 12 o clock and 3 o clock when it is very sunny. The most used and most affective lures are usually plastic worms and crawdads. To find these fish,look for heavy vegetation or trees.
The average length is 15 inches or more. Identifying them is a little tricky with a largemouth bass.To identify,look for three clues the mouth and the color. The mouth of a largemouth bass goes pass the eye while the mouth of the spotted bass doesn't. Also spotted bass has a tongue patch. The color of a largemouth bass is olive green and has a black line going through the middle of its body. The color of a spotted bass is dark green and has a black line,like the largemouth, going through the middle of its body followed by many spots.

Pine Flat Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
