Fishing Report

Lake Claude Bennett - 9/17/2019 3:39:56 PM

Water Temperature: 86 F           Visibility: 54"

Bass

Bass fishing has been good. Try using soft plastic worms or lizards in shallow coves. If your fishing early in the morning or late in the afternoon use willow bladed spinnerbaits or lipless crankbaits to catch these fish. Bass may be chasing schooling shad at this time. 

 

Bream 

Bream fishing has been fair. Try fishing out from the bridge or the earthen piers. Use crickets or red worms to catch these fish.

 

Crappie

Crappie have been biting fair. Most crappie are in deep water. Try fishing with jigs or minnows on the edge of the creek channel. 

 

Catfish

Fishing for catfish has been poor, but a few have been caught fishing deep from the campground. Cut bait may be the option during these hot days. Claude Bennett has a good population of big catfish. 

 

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
