Fishing ReportAberdeen Lake - 11/22/2017 10:37:14 AM
The bass bite is fair, but folks are catching some fish. Anglers are looking for actively feeding fish in the backwaters, but some of these places may be a bit murky after this past weekend’s rain. Lures like spinnerbaits and crankbaits are good choices for searching areas. Alternative techniques like shad colored flukes, chatterbaits, and swim jigs are good to have tied on. If you can find some shad, a weedless paddletail swimbait is a good option. The crappie reports are still fair to good. Best depths have been 4 – 6 ft deep around any woody cover along the channel and in the sloughs, around the same areas the bass are hanging out. Both jigs and minnows are catching fish but one may out produce the other on any given day. Look for chartreuse or black jigs to work better in dirty water. The catfish bite is fair. Most anglers are hitting the old river runs and also the Tombigbee River itself with tightlined cut/whole shad and liver. Jug fishing those same areas should also produce some fish.
