Eagle Lake - 11/24/2014


Crappie fishing was fair. Some fishermen have been catching around 20 per day fishing docks and boathouses in 10-13'.  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.  Try shooting the docks with roadrunners to target less pressured fish.


Bass fishing was slow.  Try pitching dark color soft plastics and jigs around wood 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.   Bass are holding on outside corners of piers and inside corners with wood present.  Bass are feeding heavily on shad and silversides.


Catfishing is still good.  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 brushpiles and laydowns.
