Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 2/21/2018 10:38:21 AM

Water temps are running in the mid to upper 50’s. Not much fishing is happening right now, but it’s a good time of year to catch that trophy bass you’ve been wanting to catch as the big females are feeding up for the spawn. Look for transition areas like ditches and drop-offs leading to the flats where the bass will eventually spawn. Lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and jerkbaits are good lures to use for these pre spawn fish. For crappie, look for deep structure and around the creek channel for fish. Like bass, the crappie are in the pre-spawn stage and feeding up before the spawn. Jigs typically out produce minnows this time of year. Most anglers opt for some contrasting color involving chartreuse during the pre-spawn stage. For bream, try fishing around deep structure and cover just out from the flats using crickets and red worms. A tightline technique is the most popular choice this time of year.
