Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 6/30/2020 12:55:40 PM
Species Detail
Bass The bass reports have been fair, with some decent topwater action happening early and late in the day. Most are throwing black frogs and black buzzbaits in and around grass and stumps in backwater areas like Camp Pratt and the Coalfire area. Overcast or rainy conditions may extend the topwater bite on into the day. Once the sun pops out, most anglers are transitioning to a little deeper water with Texas-rig/Carolina-rigged plasctics and jigs, depending on the cover in those particular areas.
Crappie The crappie bite has slowed but fish can still be caught around cover adjacent to deeper water. Anglers are still catching most of their fish on jigs, particularly ones with chartreuse in them.
Catfish The catfish bite is good along the navigation channel and the mouths of the old river runs on rod-n-reel or jugs. Cutbait, whole shad and liver have been best baits. Anglers are catching a good mix of channel and blue catfish. A few anglers are having success for blues and flatheads by hand grabbing.
