Center Hill Lake Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- striped bass seem to be hitting pretty aggressively toward higher action bait such
as crank baits and twist tails im finding that for crank baits darker colors produce very aggressive bites and with your twist tail chartreuse and white are
very popular best to keep bass gear handy just in case minnows work great as well

Center Hill Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
