Due to the cold and icy weather fishing activity is very slow on bee lake. Look for things to pick up in the weeks ahead.
For crappie, try trolling in water 6-8 feet in depth with either
minnows or jigs. Good locations included along the
outside edge of the cypress trees, around the bridge pilings, or near brush piles submerged in deeper water.
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, jigs, or other weedless lures fished slowly and very close to cover.
For catfish try tightlining near culverts with nightcrawlers for bait, especially after rains, or try setting some trotlines baited with cut bait or stink bait.
