Put 4 1/2 hours in Wed. 29th, but only boated one crappie. Was trolling crank baits most of the time hoping to pick up some eyes, but that didn\'t work. Marked most of the fish in about 12-14ft at the dam and 8-11ft. from the marina to L#4over the old creek channel. Was an awsome day to be on the water with a little wind and not too hot. Hoping the bite will pick up as the water cools down some more.

if you\'re a bass fisherman, you have to love this lake! maybe the reason nobody writes about it is, they want to keep it a secret. i agree with you though, i travel a good distance to fish wilhelm and i would like to get some info on conditions and the bite before i travel 3 hours. hopefully it stays relatively not pressured and guys like us can use this site to our advantage

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!
