LAKE PLEASANT: (Lake elevation 1,692 feet, 88 %) Should be top-water time for post-spawn largemouth bass with the best action in the northern coves. Plus, the threadfin shad should be getting ready for the spawn.
It's also possible to hit pockets of marauding striped bass right now off the main points, islands and reefs. Frozen anchovies are the ticket.
Bluegill should be spawning right now. Try night crawlers, dillies or small crappie jigs. Small spinners can also work.
Lake Pleasant fishing report by Derrick Franks of Striper Snatcher Guide Service. The water level is dropping considerably and is now at 90% elevation, with a water temp of 66 degrees.
A recent cold front has turned the lake into a wind-blown paradise, including a free shower with your boating experience. The fish have shifted their attention to the crawfish food source, as they spawned in the last moon phase.
The interesting thing about this time frame is the non-schooling striped bass and largemouth bass have no interest in a threadfin shad. With the water level dropping, netting shad will become easier and the spring bite will once again revolve around the almighty threadfin shad.
