Aberdeen Lake - 4/1/2015


Water temps continue to rise, but muddy conditions persist due to sporadic, heavy rainfall throughout the Tombigbee River watershed. Recovering from the cold front and rain, the bass and crappie bite continue to be fair to good depending on the day. Both bass and crappie are spawning right now. It took roughly 25lbs to win a 2 day, statewide tournament there this past weekend. Anglers fished from Columbus up to/including Smithville Lock. They targeted bed fish and pre spawn fish mainly. Most were throwing T-rigged soft plastics and jigs while others are covering water with spinnerbaits and swimbaits, looking for the hungry pre-spawn females. Most are targeting transition areas where the bass are holding on cover just out from spawning areas. The crappie reports are fair to good depending on the day and changes daily. The crappie being reported are coming out of the mid to upper lake area, particularly around Becker. Most anglers are using jigs in and around shallow cover like stumps and laydowns. Use contrasting colors in jig selection to trigger more bites in the dirty water.
