ABERDEEN LAKE (TENN-TOM):
The lake is still muddy due to heavy rainfall over the past week or two. These conditions proved a little tough for the local catfish anglers who had a tournament there this past Saturday. It took 33.76lbs to win with the best five fish, with a 16.5lber taking lunker for the day. The bass bite is still a bit slow due to the conditions. Bass anglers are using typical dirty water tactics like dark colored T-rigged plastics, jig-n-pig combos with some topwater action thrown in early and late in the day on buzzbaits and frogs. Shallow backwaters with grass on the west side of the channel have been good areas, these areas haven’t been affected by the heavy rains as much as other parts of the lake. The crappie reports are still fair to good with some shallow water crappie still being reported in the cleaner backwater areas. Target shallow wood or grass for best results. Roadrunner jigs and standard jigs, black and chartreuse in color have been popular lately.
