Fishing Report

Eagle Lake - 9/19/2018 11:43:14 AM

Yore Country Store and The Landing have plenty of bait and supplies. 


Hot weather and pop-up thunderstorms have slowed fishing down on Eagle, and reports are difficult to come by.


Bass fishing has been slow. Look for bass that are searching for schools of small fish during the morning and evening hours. Try locating these fish with crankbaits or spinnerbaits.  Bass must be over 16" to keep at Eagle Lake.  All bass 16" and under must be immediately released.


Its been tough for bream fishermen lately.  Some anglers are having some success fishing around shallow structure using worms or crickets.


Crappie fishing is tough right now.  Try fishing deeper ledges with different colored jigs or small crankbaits. The creel limit for crappie is 30 fish per angler. All fish 11" and under must be released immediately.


No recent reports, but fishing for catfish can good choice during the hot days.  Try cut bait or chicken livers fished 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.
