Fishing Report

Bay Springs - 11/13/2017 7:38:01 AM

The bass bite continues to be good for numbers as the fish have put on the feed bag before winter gets here. The big bite is still a bit tougher to come by, but is improving as the water temps continue to drop. Water temps are in the low 60’s right now. It took 16.39 pounds to win a team tournament there this past Saturday. Off shore structure and main lake points are starting to be the primary pattern as the vegetation is diminishing. Spinnerbaits, dropshots, A-rigs and jigs are all working for the off shore bite. More and more spotted bass are starting to get caught. The crappie reports are good if not great according to a few local anglers. Target sunken brushtops around the 15 – 20 ft range. The deeper you fish typically means the quality will be better. Mainlake points and off shore structure with any brush on them has been the hot pattern this past week. The catfish reports are slow to fair with not much action happening right now. The few anglers hitting the lake are concentrating their efforts around the Crow’s Neck area and the old Mackey’s Creek run. Any shad bait should produce some bites.
