TOMBIGBEE STATE PARK:
Water temps are in the 60s. Most reports this week were from the bass and crappie anglers. A decent shallow water bite is being reported for both, as fish are moving shallow to spawn. Crappie are coming out of laydowns at the mouths of the coves and along the banks. Most crappie are being caught on crappie jigs or minnows. The bass are in similar areas as the crappie and are also in shallow water as the spawn continues. Most anglers are using small spinnerbaits, crankbaits and t-rigged lizards. The moving baits work well for pre and post spawn fish while the soft plastics work well for those on or near the bed. The bream are starting to move shallow as well and are being caught around shallow cover in the coves. The best baits for bream have been small jigs, spinners, and meal worms.
