Ronnie at Yore Country Store reports that traffic was heavy on Eagle this weekend, but the bite had slowed considerably. Still, some fishermen were catching 15-20 crappie. Crappie should be moving into shallower water, so Buck Chute and Muddy Bayou should be productive if the weather will cooperate. Small minnows and jigs are the best bet.
Bass fishing was slow over the weekend. Largemouth bass can be
caught around the piers and deep structure by fishing slowly with jigs and soft
plastics. Slow rolling a crank bait or
spinnerbait between the piers is also an effective way to catch bass
Catfish were biting on just about everything over the weekend according to Ronnie. Catfish can be caught on
worms, liver, or cutbait in and around the cypress trees or by tight lining in
open areas. Fishing with trotlines or
limb lines is a popular method as well.
Currently there are no reports on bream, but Eagle is known for having some nice sized bream. Try crickets, worms, or beetle spins around structure.
