Eagle Lake - 8/24/2015

Crappie

Crappie fishing has been slow, but some fish are being caught around piers with jigs and minnows.  

Bass

There is a 16" minimum length limit on largemouth bass.  All fish under 16" must be released immediately.  Bass fishing is slow.  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.

Catfish    

Catfish were biting well over the weekend.  Worms fished on the bottom were the bait of choice, but liver and minnows are also a good option.

Bream

No new reports on bream this week.  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 6 fish limit on hybrid striped bass, and they must be over 15" to keep.
