Conditions : Lake Wylie: •Largemouth Bass: Slow. FLW Professional and Guide Matt Arey reports that right now the bite remains poor on Lake Wylie, and 12-13 pounds in a tournament is very strong at the moment. There is no clear reason why the fishing is so tough, and perhaps it is due to the fact that lakes tend to go in cycles. This whole year has been difficult on Lake Wylie, and while numbers are there the predominant age class seems to include a lot of 12-15 inch fish – meaning lots of 8-12 pound tournament bags. December through February, when a lot of big fish are traditionally caught, it will be interesting to see what is landed on Alabama rigs, jerkbaits and grubs. For now anglers are advised to follow the traditional fall pattern of looking for bass following shad schools into the backs of creeks. Small square-billed crankbaits and ¼ ounce Rattle Traps are both good options at this time of year, but fish will also take topwater lures such as Spooks, buzzbaits and Pop-Rs all day long once they move up shallow.

About: - Lake Wylie, a 12,455-acre impoundment on the Catawba River in North and South Carolina. Lake Wylie is an excellent bream lake and is loaded with these fish. While the average size may not be as large as on some lakes that we'll discuss, the sheer numbers of good-sized fish present more than compensate.
