Pymatuning Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This seems crazy, but last April around the 10th or so, I was out there with my son fishing for bass. I'm throw a jig around and he pulls out a topwater, after a quick tutorial as to why that wouldn't catch fish this time of year, he was stubborn enough to use it anyway because it was "neat". He caught 6 smallmouth with that thing before I was stubborn enough to switch. We had a heck of a day, went out the next day and did okay with it again but not as good. We were throwing Rebel Pop R's skittering them across the surface. Just work down the bank casting, we caught a couple largemouth too. I can't wait until April, it's almost here.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):

Bite are coming within 5-10 minutes apart.

Try it about 6:30 - 10:30 pm

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!

Pymatuning Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- I don't know what happened but I have been catching the walleye pretty good off the humps in the north end of the lake then the smallmouth moved in and I haven't been able to catch an 'eye off them. The talk at the launch is that the walleye are shallower in around 4 - 6 feet of water. People are having success with nightcrawlers.
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.

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.
