Not many angler have been on the water this week with the frigid temperatures moving across the Mississippi delta.
For crappie, try trolling along the
outside edge of the cypress trees in water 4-6 feet in depth with either
minnows or jigs. Crappie fishing at Bee has been fair to poor all year long.
For bass, try fishing soft plastics around the cypress trees or around
the docks and piers in the northern arm of the lake, or try
spinnerbaits, small crankbaits, or other shad-imitation lures around
For catfish try tightlining near culverts with nightcrawlers for bait, especially after rains, or try setting some trotlines.
