"crappies are starting to hit, water clearity is not good though. the fish are getting ready to spawn, but i don't think it is really on strong yet. If the temp climbs another 3 degrees and the clearity of the water gets better i think it will turn on like a switch. fish are being caught all through the lake right now north to south. the south end of the lake is less murky and has more visibility."

Alum Creek Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Bass pro teaser tube Texas rigged bounce it along the stumps/trees in the water to get the largemouth
agitate.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Alum Creek Lake at 51 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Largemouth 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. Largemouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Alum Creek Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Target wood on shallow main lake points with shallow running crank and spinnerbaits. You should be able to get one to put on the wall:)
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperature at 51 degrees smallmouth bass fishing is ready to heat up for spring. The bass will be starting to move into their spawning area. Smallmouth bass will generally spawn on rock and gravel bottoms that are protected from the elements. It's time to get fishing and look for staging bass in deeper water.
Alum Creek Lake Crappie Rating:

Alum Creek Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- try using a 2 inch white spinner tail jig with a white jig head i have caught hundreds of crappies with these.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye spawn is in full swing now. With Walleye spawning grounds generally on gravel and rocky bottoms and preferring clean water. Try throwing reaction type baits up in the shallows. Rip-Rap, damns, rocky bottom points are perfect to hit. Try fishing some faster crank baits and spinners this time of year. As always fall back to the standard walleye fishing tactics, but it won?t hurt bringing out the bass gear in search for spawning walleyes. In this water temperature, always be safe on the water.

3.5
Alum Creek Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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.
Alum Creek Lake Spotted Bass Rating:
2.5
Alum Creek Lake Spotted Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The full moon has just past. The gravitational pull is starting to decrease with the moon and sun being on opposite sides of the planet. 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. It's always fun trying something new at the peak times to change things up a bit and test out the Lunar Theory each time you hit the water in close to full and full moon situations. Good luck you there.
