Eagle Lake - 10/27/2014


Crappie are biting at Eagle! Fishermen were having success over the weekend.  One fisherman caught 21 nice ones last weekend around a pier using a silver jig.  Fishermen have been reporting catching 15-20 at a time.  Jigs and minnows are the best bets.  Piers close to deep water along the south end of the lake are a good place to try and trolling the open water should also produce results.


There was a tournament on Eagle this weekend, and Ronnie said they did fairly well.  Pitch dark color soft plastics and jigs around cypress trees close to deep water.  Piers and laydowns near deep water are holding bass.  Throwing a crankbait or chatterbait between the piers and near the mouth of Muddy Bayou are producing as well.   


Catfishing is still good. Ronnie reports that fishermen are "tearing up" the catfish.  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.    


A few bream were caught recently, but it's still a little slow.  Eagle is known for having some nice sized bream.  Try crickets, worms, or beetle spins around structure.
