Lake Cunningham Largemouth Bass Rating:
Lake Cunningham Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Largemouth Bass are really liking the Watermelon Chart salamander on a Carolina
Rig this year. Drop it on the edge of the channel or around any point near the
channel and be sure to fish is slow. Nice 3/4 ounce weight above your swivel and
drag it across the bottom, preferably around any brush you may can find with
your depth finder. Best luck I have had for the last month this year has been
between 12pm and 3pm, then again between 5pm and 7pm. Fishing near the banks
have been decent with a bubble gum or white floating worm fished on the points
or around any downed timber. There is a ton of down trees on the banks, but very
few of those spots are holding bass this year. I have caught many Largemouth on
top water frogs and poppers for the last 5 years with no problem, however this
year they don\'t seem to want anything to do with top water unless its at a time
of day I haven\'t been out too much. I just started trying a Strike King black
and silver square billed crank bait and so far I have been successful with that
as well. They seem to be holding in either 11 to 13 ft in the channel, or
between 6 and 8 feet just outside of the channel. I also haven\'t had too much
luck this year around the lilly pads, but what little bit of luck I have had has
been with a natural color worm with a heavy weight on a Texas rig. As any good
fisherman, I don\'t give away my good fishing spots but I will give you a little
tip on where you might can have some luck. Find the power lines that are
crossing the lake. If your familiar with this lake, i\'m sure you know exactly
where i\'m talking about. If not, just ride towards the damn while looking up and
it would be a good idea to have a depth/fish finder. Lake Cunningham has many
drastic changes in the depths and has a very clear flat bottom in most areas
since CPW drained the lake and killed all the undergrowth last year. Good luck!

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 89 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!
Lake Cunningham Crappie Rating:
Lake Cunningham Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.
Lake Cunningham Walleye Rating:
Lake Cunningham Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With the water temperatures up this high, the walleye will really be moving slow and feeding even slower. It will be extremely difficult to stay on fish and catch good numbers. There will be good days that you can find a good pattern and fill the live well up. The good days of walleye fishing will be fewer and farther between until the water temperature gets back down. Good luck.
Lake Cunningham Catfish Rating:
Lake Cunningham Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Catfish will be more active than most other species in the lake. However they will be feeding much slower due to the lake having less oxygen and less healthy than when the water temperature is a little cooler. Donít throw in the towel, your monster catfish may be waiting for you. As always the best time to go fishing is every time you can go fishing. Good luck!

Spotted bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
