Winter Fishing Tips (Weekly reports will resume mid-February)

Largemouth bass can be caught around structure, and in coves near the back of the lake Try Texas-rigged plastic worms; June bug, green pumpkin, and Bama Bug colors work well.

Crappie can be caught in deeper water, around 10 to 15 ft deep. Minnows or jigs tipped with minnows are good choices.

Bream can be caught using crickets or worms around brushtops in 5 to 10 ft of water.

Catfish are usually good around creek channels and points. Try cutbait and worms fished on the bottom.
