The fish on the southern end of the lake are spawning or have already spawned. The bass in the middle to northern end of teh lake are still going through the motions. Use a lizard, shakey head with a trick worm, or a wild colored foating worm to entice a strike.

Water Temperature:
March 30, 2013 water temp 52-56 degrees, stained. I concentrated in the middle section of the lake. The bass have not gone to bed for the spawn in full force yet. Just starting to see a few bedded bass. The majority of active fish are on the closest ambush point near the bedding areas waiting for a meal to come by. Believe it or not, top water plugs and shallow running crank baits are the ticket. Fished a tourney Saturday and came in the money with 13 lbs and change. Caught 15 bass or so and culled a few times. The full spawn is just around the corner

Lake Wylie Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The buck bass are starting to create and guard the beds for the spawn. Water temp is around 58 to 62 degrees.I have been catching them on a shakey head with a trick worm from inches of water to 6 feet. Spinner baits, texas rigged lizards, and square bill crank baits are good too.It may take multiple cast to the same spot in order to agravate a bedding bass to bite.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 62 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Lake Wylie Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

Spotted Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The spotted bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new 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.
