Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 10/11/2021 2:19:28 PM
Species Detail
Bass Bass fishing has been average. Bass anglers cruising shoreline grass beds have had some success. Deep water structure and main-channel points have also produced fish. Dark colors like purple and black seem to be working best lately.
Crappie The crappie bite has been fair. Anglers have had some luck fishing around standing timber in the Camp Pratt area. A few have also been caught up in grass beds. Jigs and minnows have both caught fish.
Catfish Trotlining or jug fishing near the main channel has produced some catfish. Cut and whole shad or nightcrawlers work well.
