Eagle Lake - 6/30/2020 11:13:10 AM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass In anticipation of storms moving in this holiday weekend bass fishing may be good. Bass may come to shallower water during times there are cloudy overcast. A variety of lures can be good to fish with during this time from topwater lures to lipless crankbaits.
Crappie Deep water is where crappie have retreated to since temperatures are high. Try fishing where the depths drops from 9 - 12 feet deep. Crappie sometimes forage for food on the edge of deep drop-offs. Try fishing with dark colored jigs tipped with nibble or live minnows. If you aren't big on still fishing in one spot try slow trolling small crankbaits in these areas also.
Bream Bream are in shallow water around emergent vegetation or structure. Use small worms or crickets to catch these fish. Another good place to try is fishing near Muddy Bayou.
Catfish Look for catfish in deep areas of the lake. Cutbait can work particularly well this time of year. Another good choice of bait is commercial stink baits. These baits give off a strong pungent odor that can attract fish from affair.
