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.
Species: Largemouth Bass
Fishing Rating: 4
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.

Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Wylie at 41 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.
Lake Wylie Crappie Rating:
Lake Wylie Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
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:

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!
