:Lake Wylie: Largemouth Bass: Slow to fair. FLW Professional and Guide Matt Arey reports that right now the bite remains pretty tough on Lake Wylie as water temperatures dont seem to have dropped enough for the late fall/ winter Alabama rig/ jerkbait/ grub bite to get good. For now fish are still 100% related to bait and the bite on the lower end of the lake has been better; look for fish around depth changes adjacent to deep water. Small square-billed crankbaits and ¼ ounce Rattle Traps will both catch fish and jerkbaits and grubs are starting to perform better, but later in the year these baits and Alabama rigs will come into their own. Spoons are also working decently right now and picking up a lot of white perch, too.
