Lake Mary Crawford - 9/22/2014

For more detailed information please contact the Lake Office at (601) 587-7853.

Water Temperature:  86

Visibility: 23"


Bass fishing was good this past week.  One angler caught 30 on thursday and 26 on saturday on a junebug colored worm.  The cooling water temperature has the bass getting more active.  Some fishermen have been having some success with watermelon colored worms.  Also try junebug, tequila sunrise or red shad colored lures.  Target main lake points, brush piles, and structure along the levee in deep water.  The creek channels are holding some bass later in the day.  Harvest of small bass is encouraged at this lake. 


Bream fishing is fair.  Tight lining with redworms is a good way to catch redear sunfish.


No reports on catfish.  Fishermen have been having some success at night.  Catfish are usually good on the shallower flats and points. Try worms or liver fished on the bottom.


Crappie fishing is very slow, but should start to pick up with the cooling temperatures.  Try using minnows or various colored jigs in 8-10 feet of water.  Target deep water brush piles along the dam and main lake points too.
