Tombigbee State Park - 5/18/2015


Water temps are running in the 70s. Not much action on the lake from this past weekend. The few that came out were crappie fishing. The crappie bite is fair and the fish seem to be suspended in about 6 to 8 feet of water. Most anglers aren’t exactly beating the banks/laydowns, but they aren’t fishing along off shore structure either. Trolling jigs and small spinners has been the best technique. The bream are off the bed but still holding close to shoreline cover in 3-6ft of water. Look for bluegill to hit the beds again the first week of June during the next full moon. Tightlining or cork fishing small jigs, crickets, and redworms are all proven methods for bream. One may also try casting beetlespins/roadrunner jigs to help locate active fish. For bass, a lot of bass are still shallow and are holding on laydowns in the coves and are feeding on the bream in and around beds. T-rigged or shakeyhead soft plastics and small spinnerbaits have been best baits. Don’t overlook a topwater bite early and late in the day. If overcast conditions are present, the topwater bite may last on into the day.
