Lake Wylie fishing tips - April 1, 2008

• Largemouth Bass: Good. Fish around boat houses in 8 to 10 feet of water and target the Catawba Creek area. Throw a No. 7 shad rap, jig and pig, or try a watermelon red soft plastic bait.

• Crappie: Good. Use a small black jig or solid chartreuse jig tipped with a minnow. Fish around boathouses very slowly. On warm afternoons look for fish to move into shallow water.

• White perch: Very good. Fish in 20-24 feet of water next to river channels and crisscross deep to shallow until fish are located. Use a minnow or jig lowered to the bottom, with a slow bump.
