Fishing & Boating



Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 11/27/2023 2:51:41 PM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass Try targeting main lake flats as fish will be schooled up and chasing baitfish in these areas. Lures like rattletraps, spinnerbaits and other baitfish imitating baits are good for those fish actively feeding. If the bite seems a bit slow, slow down and target those same areas and the drop-offs around those areas with Texas-rigged/shakeyhead plastics.
Crappie No current reports on crappie fishing. Live minnows or jigs around deeper structure are probably your best bets.
Bream Bream fishing has been fair. Crickets and worms are working well.
Catfish No current reports on catfish, but tightlining with cut bait seems to be working as well as anything else. Kool aid flavored chicken and night crawlers are also good options.
