Fishing Rating: 5
Water Temperature:
The fishing has been consistent through the month of March. Our guides have been able to put clients on fish every outing, but having to use a variety of techniques to be successful. The white perch have been spawning over the last 3 weeks but not all at once making the fish more scattered, and more difficult to fill the box. The size of the fish have been exceptionally large as expected for this time of year. If you would are interested in more information or booking a trip visit our website www.lartoguideservice.com

Water Temperature:
Larto lake was 3 feet below pool stage last time I post a report. But since then we have had a significant amount of rain and the lake is now about 1 foot above pool stage. The white perch are beginning to move up to spawn but the big females are still suspended out from the banks. Fishing has been good the past week. Over the weekend our guides had 2 very successful trips but fought the wind. The action is heating up and will just get better visit our website to get booking information.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Larto Lake at 43 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Smallmouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Smallmouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Larto Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- For crappie here, the peak of the spawn can be from the end of february to the middle of march. It will be good fishing in the shallows through june. The best baits I have found are shiners(minnows) and hair jigs.

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.

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:

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.
