Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 11/15/2019 6:14:40 PM
Species Detail
Bass Bass fishing has been slow. Watch your graph for shad balls. Find the baitfish, you will find the bass. Fresh water from recent rains has given the bass lock-jaw. Some bass have move shallow to feed up for the fall/winter. Try lures mimicking baitfish around points, contour changes, and vegetation. The best option right now is to find baitfish and fish soft plastics and spinnerbaits. Natural colors tend to be the best option.
Crappie The crappie bite remains poor. Try keying in on suspended fish.
Catfish The catfish bite is good. Jug fishing and bumping the bottom have been popular lately using cut/whole shad and kool-aid flavored chicken is a good bait choice. Look for areas just off the navigation channel out of the current to hold fish.
