Went fishing last week, caught a really nice large mouth on a rooster fishing the shallow flats. Also caught a hand full of striped bass using the same bait. GREAT LAKE FOR STRIPERS!!!!!!!!!! Biggest so far is 10.75 pounds up in the salt river off the main lake.

Taylorsville 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.

Taylorsville Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye function very well in the colder water temperatures. Try fishing some open flats and definitely use live bait when the water temperature is this low. Plastics with scent added will also produce results, but nothing beats live bait for walleye.

Taylorsville Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 3 nice size cats yesterday bluegill fishing. worm with float about 6 feet deep 20 yards out in 25 ft of water - pretty odd, but no doubt about them being hungry the way they were nailing it. Only bites when the breeze moved from the east, no bites while breeze from the soutwest.
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.

Taylorsville Lake Striped Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Find flats with deep water is close shad will run on the edge of the flat and
up on the flats chasing shad, swim jigs, plain white jigs, rooster tails but
preferred bait of the striped and hybrid bass are live shad stay in water
under 20 feet for the most active fish when water reaches 55 degrees these
fish really get active.

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.
