Fishing Report

Bee Lake - 11/15/2019 5:36:31 PM
Species Detail
Bass For bass, target areas like the fishing piers across from the boat ramp or on the northern arm of the lake with spinnerbaits or soft plastics. Fish sampling in the fall of 2018 found a slight increase in bass numbers at Bee Lake, with most adult fish between 12 and 15 inches in length.
Crappie For crappie, target shoreline areas with structure such as cypress knees, flooded brush, or submerged vegetation. Many crappie anglers use jigs or minnows and fish slowly around and in structure in water less than 3 feet deep to catch spawning crappie. Other anglers troll in slightly deeper water adjacent to the shore to target pre-spawn or post-spawn fish.
Bream Bream anglers should start seeing the bite to pick up. With temperatures constantly in the 80's anglers may find bream congregating and creating beds. Targets areas of structures such as cypress knees and brush piles. Crickets and red worms are always a good bait choice. Fish along banks in 2-5 feet of water.
Catfish For catfish, anglers use a variety of fishing gear such as rod and reel, trotline, jugs, and limb lines. Most anglers use things like nightcrawlers, chicken liver, or prepared catfish bait for channel catfish, while live bait such as goldfish or small sunfish are used for flathead catfish. Good places to try for catfish at Bee right now include near the pipes when water is flowing in from nearby fields and along the shoreline on the northern arm of the lake.
