Wiest Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- This is Billy and judy we stay at Wiest lake a lot, nice camping at this lake.
The park rangers are verry friendly.
Any way I have cought some verry big large mouth bass in Wiest lake.
Drop shot fishing with a purple 6 to 8 in. worm works best.
A few lures work along the dock that dvides the swimming part from the
main lake.
Some rooster tails work but not all ways.
This is a heavly fished lake, lots of people here on the weakends.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 48 degrees. If you have a chance to get out on the water, you are going to have to fish deep and slow. Jig fishing and Plastic baits may be your best bet this time of year for largemouth bass. You may also try fishing some sinking jerk baits.

Wiest Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Billy and judy again, Croppie fishing is best around the dock, try to cast
under the dock for best results,small white curly tail jigs, nightcrowlers
also work.
the big ones are under the dock.
Millworms also work.
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.

This is where most catfish are cought in the lake.
Hotdogs,millworms,nightcrowlers,chickenlivers,just about any thing goes

Billy and Judy.
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.

Wiest Lake Trout Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Trout in Wiest lake is seasonal, best time is when the water cools way down.
Fish and game will stock a lot of trout in the winter here a Wiest lake.
Catching trout at this lake is easy, power bait, last year it was rainbow
colors of this bait worked best with a cheese smell.
And yes I do have my favorite way of catching trout.
Think verry thin line no.6 hook and a nice nightcrowler.

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!
