Fishing ReportEagle Lake - 10/17/2017 8:44:38 AM
Yore Country Store and The Landing have plenty of bait and supplies.
***New crappie regulations went into effect October 1, 2015. The creel limit was reduced from 50 to 30 fish per angler, and all fish 11" and under must be released immediately.***
Above: A 9.8 pound Eagle Lake bass
Currently there are no reports on bass. Try topwater and soft plastics along pads in Float Row and around cypress trees early morning and late evening. During the day, fish soft plastics slow along deep ledges. Also try deep-diving crankbaits and spinnerbaits around the piers. Largemouth bass must be over 16" to keep.
Bream fishing is fair on crickets and worms. Fishing around the cypress trees and around the docks is usually productive.
Some nice Bluegill and a couple of Black Crappie caught at Eagle.
Crappie fishing is picking up some. Fish deep for crappie this time of year. Troll deep ledges with roadrunners and fish deep piers with minnows. Remember, crappie must be over 11" to keep at Eagle Lake. Also try the cypress trees across from the boat ramp and around the piers with minnows in 8 - 12 feet of water.
The catfish bite has been good recently. Worms, minnows, and chicken livers are all catching fish.
We have no recent reports on White Bass, but they can often be found schooling on shad off of points and along dropoffs. There is no limit on these fish, but there is a 6 fish limit on hybrid striped bass and they must be over 15" to keep.
