Fishing Report

Kemper County Lake - 11/18/2019 9:23:59 AM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass Currently there are no reports on bass fishing. Try flukes or other baitfish-mimicking lures.
Crappie The crappie bite has picked up somewhat. Minnows and jigs in 12 feet of water or so have been working as well as anything. GPS coordinates for numerous deep water structures are listed below.
Bream Crickets and red worms around brush and along primary drop-offs produced the most fish. Look for bigger bream to be around fish attractors near bedding areas.
Catfish The catfish bite has been poor. Try tight lining with liver and/or night crawlers. Targeting some of the deeper laydowns and along the levee should produce some fish.
