Eagle Lake - 5/26/2015


Crappie fishing has slowed some, but one angler had success over the weekend jigging around piers in water 7-8' deep.  Jigs and minnows are the best bet.


There is a 16" minimum length limit on largemouth bass.  All fish under 16" must be released immediately.  Bass fishing seems to have picked up a little.  A few fishermen reported having success, but with different methods.  One was fishing with small crankbaits in about a foot of water over old bream beds, and the other was fishing in deep water with soft plastics.  Also, try under docks and piers with small jigs, Texas-rigged soft plastics, or shaky heads.  Blue, black, or junebug colors are best. Cypress trees and laydowns should be holding bass too.


The catfishing is excellent at Eagle.  Minnows, liver and worms fished on the bottom are a good option.


Recent creels showed a few bluegill were biting, but it is still slow.  Crickets fished around any structure such as piers or brush can be productive.  Tightlining with worms is a good way to catch Redear.

White Bass

White bass fishing is fair.  Rat-L-Traps or other crankbaits are effective when the white bass are schooling.  There is no limit on white bass, but there is a 7 fish limit on hybrid striped bass, and they must be bigger than 15" to keep.
