Fishing Report

Eagle Lake - 10/17/2018 9:13:10 AM

Yore Country Store and The Landing have plenty of bait and supplies. 




Bass fishing is still slow. As temperatures start to decrease bass start to move to shallow water. Use spinnerbaits and crankbaits around structure. Using topwater can be good option during the day. Bass must be over 16" to keep at Eagle Lake. All bass 16" and under must be immediately released.


Its been tough for bream fishermen lately. Some anglers are having some success fishing around shallow structure using worms or crickets.


Fishing for crappie has been rough this week. Try fishing around cover or structure with different colored jigs or small crankbaits. The creel limit for crappie is 30 fish per angler. All fish 11" and under must be released immediately.


No recent reports. Catfish tend to move less as temperatures start to drop. Try cut bait or chicken liver fished on the bottom.

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters.   Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets.
