Conditions : Lake Monticello: Lake Monticello water temperatures still range from the mid-50s to mid-60s depending on area of the lake, with the lower end warmer because of proximity to the cooling station. Lake levels always fluctuate daily.

Tournament activity has a lot of bass fishermen on other lakes in the spring, but Andy Wicker of Pomaria reports that at this time of year on Moticello he likes to throw an Alabama rig from 15 feet of water to the bank. Fish are starting to stage up for the pre-spawn, and that means that they will be around areas like secondary points that mark the first stop on their migration routes into spawning areas. They won’t be out on the main lake, and they also won’t be tucked way back yet.

Crankbaits are also a good lure choice right now, particularly around points. While a lot of anglers look for rock at this stage Andy believes that location is more important than the type of cover.

On the catfish front Captain Chris Simpson (864-992-2352) reports that catfish remain scattered out in 45-70 feet of water, and anchoring is the best pattern. However, the warm weather also has a decent number of fish up shallow and so it’s worth prospecting with electronics and then putting out some baits in a variety of depths. Cut gizzard shad and white perch continue to be the best big fish baits.
