Fishing has begun to pick up recently on Bee. Crappie are being caught near the bridge. Crappie fishing at Bee has been fair to poor all year long. Try trolling along the
outside edge of the cypress trees in water 4-6 feet in depth with either
minnows or jigs.
For catfish try tightlining near culverts with nightcrawlers for bait. Or try using yo-yos or jugs, baited with red weenies or chicken gizzards, if that's more your style.
For bass, many anglers are targeting inflowing water and having good success throwing a crank bait or spinner bait. A top water lure early in the morning is another good bet, and soft plastics flipped around the cypress trees is always a go to for producing fish at Bee.
Bell's store is still open and under new management There is a launch fee to use the new ramp.

If you catch a tagged gar, please record the tag number and the length and weight of the fish and then release the fish alive. Call 601-432-2400 to report catch a tagged gar.
