Lake Arthur Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This cove is a hotspot for bass at the time of year. Also kniown as trout cove this cove is a perfect plce to cast your bait out and make a slower reel because there is a lot of weeds there they will be hesitant ot come out of the weeds. Be careful when you come in though there are many other fish that are there and they will spook the bass if you disturb them. There is also good fishing for other common species.

Lake Arthur Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This is a good spot for catfish as well as other species but the real fish that bites here is crappie and other panfish. Try anchored and just a worm all the way down or make a drift from one end of the island to the other. Also try drifting or anchored in the channel behind it.
View Tip Location on Map
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

- fish the road beds this is where you will catch these ones,
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Lake Arthur Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This channel really is a good spot for the above average catfish that are in this lake. Since that clarity isn't that good you really need to get something that they can smell. Try just drifting in the channel or in frot of the island but once you get out there it is mostly large panfish.
View Tip Location on Map
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.
