• Largemouth Bass: Good. For a week or two now the bass have been spawning hard on Lake Wylie, and they should continue to bed for at least a couple more weeks. Pre-spawn fish can also be found around the banks as well as bucks guarding fry. Fishing floating worms, weightless senkos, swimbaits, shakey head worms and Texas-rigged lizards around the banks and spawning pockets will catch fish, and there have also been fish caught on buzzbaits and chatterbaits. Once water temperatures rise a couple more degrees the shad will move up to spawn and then the bite for bass feeding on them will be wide open.
