Fishing ReportLake Lincoln State Park - 5/23/2023 10:13:48 PM
|Bass||Bass continue to be caught relatively shallow. Bass continue to bite with a slow retrieve on highly active spinner baits and soft plastics. Choose a crankbait or spinnerbait in chartreuse or red with a large blade to catch their eye, focus fishing effort near deep woody structure.|
|Crappie||Crappie fishing is ok. Focus fishing effort near the dam with small white crank baits or live minnows. Jigging works wonderfully near deep structure, 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 picking up as temperatures rise. Focus fishing effort near vegetation or shallow structure with small white beetle spins or fish on bottom with redworms or night crawlers. A slow retrieve is best.|
|Catfish||Catfish will be biting better with increasing temperatures. Focus fishing effort on bottom in the coves with stink baits or livers soaked in koolaid.|

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.
Many fish attractor sites were created in 2011, 2015, and 2016. Many were marked with GPS and the coordinates are listed below. Be sure your GPS is set to read decimal degrees (shown below) and not degrees-minutes-seconds when attempting to locate these attractors.
