Prado Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 62 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.

Prado Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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!
Prado Lake Walleye Rating:

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.

Prado Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
