Fishing ReportLake Mary Crawford - 5/23/2023 10:25:08 PM
|Largemouth Bass||Bass continue to be caught relatively shallow. Continue to choose a lure in whites/silvers that makes a bit of noise when being reeled in and focus fishing effort near deep woody structure. Spinnerbaits in bright colors also work well around points and channel ledges.|
|Crappie||Crappie fishing is still good with warmer days pushing them shallower. Black and chartreuse jigs as well as minnows are effective. Try fishing in 2 to 3 feet of water but continue to focus fishing effort near deep structure with small white crank baits or live minnows. Jigging also works wonderfully near the dam, 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 getting better with increasing temperatures. 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 bite is ok. Focus fishing effort on bottom in the coves with stink baits or livers soaked in koolaid.|
