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 spawn is in full swing now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Try throwing reaction type baits up in the shallows. Rip-Rap, damns, rocky bottom points are perfect to hit. Try fishing some faster crank baits and spinners this time of year. As always fall back to the standard walleye fishing tactics, but it won?t hurt bringing out the bass gear in search for spawning walleyes. In this water temperature, always be safe on the water.

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.

Lake Arthur Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Arthur at 51 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Spotted bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Spottted Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Lake Arthur Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease 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.
