Fishing ReportLake Lamar Bruce - 5/24/2023 3:33:49 PM
|Largemouth Bass||The bass bite is being reported as good. Most anglers are catching them in deeper water. Jigs, Texas-rigs and deep running crankbaits are good options fished around the points and deep structure. There’s still a topwater bite early and late in the day, so keep a frog or buzzbait handy if fishing during those hours.|
|Crappie||No crappie reports have come in.|
|Bream||Bream have been on and off the beds and fishing has been hit or miss but some good reports have come in. Bobber fishing and tightlining with crickets or worms around cover near beds should get some action.|
|Catfish||There’s still some catfish action coming from the small pond following the recent fishing rodeo. Few catfish reports have come from the big lake. Worms, chicken liver and stinkbait are popular bait options.|
