Fishing Report

Lake Monroe - 11/22/2017 12:59:31 PM

Water temps are now in the mid 50’s. Fishing pressure continues to be low, but a few anglers are coming out in search of bass and bream. The bass bite, particularly for quality size fish has picked up. Anglers are throwing spinnerbaits, suspending jerkbaits, swimbaits (including the Alabama-rig), and jigs. Target the deeper points and primary drop-offs where the bass are holding in wait for food to swim by. A few bream anglers continue to target the piers and drop-offs with redworms and crickets fished on a tight line. Still not much to report for a catfish bite except a few bream anglers are catching a catfish or two on their tightlined redworm presentation.


A couple quality largemouth from this past weekend.



Anglers need to keep in mind the size and creel limits of the lake:

Bass: Limit of 10 per day, bass between 14 - 22 inches must be released immediately

Crappie: Limit of 20 per day with no length limit

Bream: Limit of 100 per day with no length limit

Catfish: Limit of 10 per day with no length limit
