Above: A healthy Lake Tangipahoa bass caught recently.

No current reports on bass, but some nice fish have been caught.  Soft plastics should be the go-to lures right now.


No current reports available. Try crickets and worms in 6 to 8 feet of water.


No current reports available.  Small minnows and jigs fished around the willows should produce some fish.


Currently there are no reports on catfish, but Lake Tangipahoa has some big blue cats!  Try chicken livers or nightcrawlers on the bottom.

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.
