Fishing Report

Lake Bogue Homa - 11/12/2019 1:00:50 PM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass Fishing is best early morning and around sunset. Bass are biting well near vegetation on dark colored plastics and crawfish. The method that has proven most successful is by casting soft plastics with no weight onto grass, let it sit for a moment and slightly jostle the lure. Fishermen have been reporting catching bass daily with this method. Average size caught is 2-3 pounds.
Crappie Crappie bite is still really good! They are biting near the fishing piers and spillway on curly-tailed jigs and small minnows.
Bream Bream bite is slowing. Bream in the half pound range are biting on red worms from the long pier on the lake road. They have also been biting well in the creek on crickets.
Catfish Catfish are biting well near the dam and around the cypress island on redworms.
