Largemouth bass can be caught in shallow areas as they move in to bed. Try weightless plastics and jigs for bedding fish.  Black, Junebug and Watermelon Seed are the colors of choice.  They are biting best in the lily pads.

Crappie can be caught around structure in 5 to 7 feet of water on minnow-tipped jigs. Slow trolling small crankbaits or minnows can also be effective.

Bream are starting to bite around piers on crickets in 7 to 9 feet of water.  Redear and Bluegill are beginning to bed and can be caught in shallows on red worms and crickets.

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.
