Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 5/23/2022 7:53:15 AM
Species Detail
Bass Bass reports have been fair. Bass have been caught around shallow vegetation and stumps near spawning areas. Texas-rigged plastics and jigs have been working during the day. Spinnerbaits or swimbaits may get a bite from those fish guarding fry or around bream beds. A topwater bite on frogs and buzzbaits early and late in the day shouldn’t be overlooked.
Crappie The crappie bite has slowed down. A few anglers are using crappie jigs and minnows around cover where shade is available. The best water depths are from 4-8 feet.
Catfish Catfish anglers have had some success on and just off the navigation channel. Current breaks and eddies are good spots to target with cutbait or chicken. Jug and trotline fishing have been the most popular methods.
