Winter Fishing Tips
Largemouth bass can be caught around brush piles, the dam, and ledges in 5 to 15 ft of water. Try Texas-rigged plastic worms, shaky heads, drop shots, and jigs. Red shad, green pumpkin, and bama bug colors work well. Also try using suspending jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits along the channel where it swings close to the shoreline.
Crappie can be caught in deeper water, around 10 to 15 ft deep. Several anglers report catching limits (30 fish) of good size fish during winter months. Minnows or jigs tipped with minnows are good choices.
Bream can be caught using crickets or worms around brushtops in 5 - 10 ft of water.
Catfish are usually good around creek channels and points. Try cutbait and worms fished on the bottom.
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.
