Winter Fishing Tips

Largemouth bass can be caught along the dam, around deep cover, and on ledges along the river channel. Try soft plastics, jigs and drop shots fished slowly.  Suspending jerkbaits and crankbaits also work well. 

Crappie can be caught around the willows in 10 to 15 feet of water on minnow-tipped jigs. Slow trolling small crankbaits can also be effective.

Fish for bream in 5 to 10 feet of water on crickets and worms fished on the bottom.

Lake Tangipahoa has some very large catfish! Try cutbait and worms or livers fished on the bottom.
