Prado Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Prado Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- In the early spring, the Walleye are right close to shore or congregating around
areas with sand like a sand bar or a Wild Rice bed with a sandy bottom. They
will also be found in the weeds or around rocky point, which are close to an
area with sand. The location of sand is very important because that's where they
spawn. They will also spawn in river current. At this time of year the Walleyes
are very aggressive and will hit just about any lure.

When the water starts to warm up, you will find that the Walleyes will go a
little deeper or hide in the thick weeds. At this time of year, jigs with white
twistertails are the best. You can try other colors but white is what works best
in the far north so make sure you bring lots of them. Bring unscented
twistertails. The scented Power Baits do not work in the north. Buy unscented
tristertails and do not spray scent on your lures. Salted baits do work well in
the north and so do salted minnows.

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.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. 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. Have a great day!
