twitches then reel up slack slowly.Cast near rock piles in shallow water near a drop-off.If the bite is
on wounded shiners use a Zoom Super Fluke.Use a jig and pig if the bite is on crawfish.If you
aren\'t sure use a worm first then minnow imitations then go from there.Try the stop and go retrieve

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 64 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Wilson Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- When fishing for crappie find the smallest possible bobber and fish weightless.Use a Gulp Alive!
maggot,worm,or 1\" minnow in emerald shiner.Put on a cricket hook as they tend to swallow it.The
longer shank makes it easier to take out.I also like using a bucktail 1/64 oz jig with the same small
bobber.Or a 1/8 oz Road Runner in black marabou or a 1/8 oz Rooster Tail in gray shiner.I
suggest an ultralite Ugly Stik with a Shimano Sonora 1000FD,then spool up with Berkley Trilene
Smooth Casting in 4 pound test (lo-vis green is best) also I only use a palomar knot.Don\'t
underestimate the strength,my dad caught a 26 pound catfish on this by mistake.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

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.

Wilson Lake 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.
