Fishing Report (Week of 02/18/18)
Water Temp: 65°
Most fishing is picking up in shallow waters as the temperatures rise. Bedding activity is beginning with Bass, Crappie and Bream around the lake.
Largemouth bass can be caught along the dam, in shallow areas near structure, and near the pier across from the office. They are biting most heavily in the old creekbed that runs through the lake. Try soft plastics, jigs and night crawlers.
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. They seem to be biting most readily near the spillway.
Fish for bream in 5 to 10 feet of water on crickets and worms fished on the bottom.
Catfish can be caught with worms or livers fished on the bottom in the old creek channels.
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 these Reel Facts Sheets.
Local fisherman Marcus Landon of Laurel was fishing for Crappie in 4-6' of water using minnows.
