ABERDEEN LAKE (TENN-TOM):
The bass reports are still good as the fish are in all stages of the spawn. Most anglers are throwing spinnerbaits, frogs and t-rigged plastics. If you can find some cleaner water, a soft plastic jerkbait like a fluke or senko should get you a few bites as well. The crappie reports are good. Crappie anglers are targeting the lower and middle parts of Becker along with other backwater areas with stumps and laydowns. Jigs have been working better than minnows. Try using contrasting color combinations, like black and chartreuse, in those dirty water situations to increase your chances. Some catfish anglers are hitting the water and are reported some success. The anglers are using nightcrawlers and cutbait just off the navigation channel to catch their fish. Some anglers are concentrating on the area around the mouth of the old Tombigbee River.
