Fishing Report

Lake Tom Bailey - 2/20/2018 3:58:45 PM

Bass

Some bass are preparing to move into the shallow coves from the deeper water. Fish slowly using artificial soft plastic lures.

BREAM

Try fishing near standing structure along the damn around 4 - 8 ft with worms or crickets.

CRAPPIE

Crappie will be in deep water around submerged structure and creek channels. Ledges along the channel prove to be crappie hot spots during this time of year. Fish are mainly deep right now but will move to shallow areas as water temperatures increase. Minnows or jigs tipped with a nibble may be the best choice.

CATFISH

Try for catfish along creek channels and deep structure. Brush piles in 8 - 10 ft of water that were added in January should be holding catfish this time of year. Tight lining with stink baits, liver or worms are best ways to harvest late winter catfish.

 

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

GPS Coordinates for brush piles that were added 1/12/16 are listed below.
