Fishing ReportLake Bogue Homa - 11/27/2023 10:41:58 AM
|Largemouth Bass||Bass are being caught on artificial worms and crankbaits near the channel and on the banks in the early mornings and late evenings.|
|Crappie||Crappie are biting around the piers and around the whole lake. Jigging works wonderfully from the pier near the office. Don’t be shy to use a spray-on fish attractant for artificial lures, a large part of the crappie’s predation instinct is scent driven.|
|Bream||Bream fishing is good from the fishing piers and around the banks. Focus fishing effort near vegetation or shallow structure with small white beetle spins or fish on bottom with redworms, night crawlers and crickets. A slow retrieve is best.|
|Catfish||Catfish bite is ok. Focus fishing effort on bottom around the office pier or the channel near the spillway with stink baits or livers soaked in koolaid.|
