Fishing Report

Neshoba County Lake - 6/19/2018 2:19:48 PM


A few bass are still in shallow waters around vegetation. Try fishing in the pads and grass lines with soft plastics and top water lures.  Most bass are suspended off of points in medium to deep water. Try using medium diving crank baits and spinner baits to catch these fish. Here's a trophy bass caught recently by Lewis James. It weighed in at 11.1 lbs. Congrats to Lewis on his nice catch. 


Bream are being caught in shallow areas of 2 - 6 feet of water on crickets and worms.


Some crappie are still being caught in and around vegetation while others have migrated to deeper water. These fish have been caught using either jigs or minnows. 


Try catfish in 10 - 12 feet of water around brush piles or along creek channels. Using liver or cut bait can be the best way to catch these fish. Hand grabbing for catfish is popular this time of year. The season starts on May 1 and ends July 15.


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
