Bass fishing is has been good on topwater lures fished early in the morning or late evening. Crankbaits and soft plastics are working well on schooling bass.

Bream

Bream fishing is finally picking up and earthworms tightlined on the bottom are working very well. Some big Redear Sunfish are being caught.

Crappie

Crappie fishing has been good recently on minnows in 8 to 10 feet of water.

Catfish

The catfish bite is fair right now, but Calling Panther has a very healthy catfish population.  Try night crawlers or chicken livers on the bottom.

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters.   Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets.
