- Drag a night crawler along the bottom
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Fontana Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Pantyhose--cut a small section from the pantyhose. If you start from the toe,
fill a two inch section with chicken livers, stinkbait etc. Pull excess hose to
tie a knot against the chicken livers, stinkbait etc. Now hook the bait as you
regularly would. This tip will help you from slinging off your bait and you can
use it longer knowing your bait is still on your hook.

Fontana Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. 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. Have a great day!
