Fishing & Boating

Fishing Report

Lake Tom Bailey - 7/17/2018 7:08:48 PM

Bass

Bass are in mid-deep waters off points near vegetation. Try using medium diving crank baits and jerk baits in these areas to catch these fish.

BREAM

Some bream are in the shallow waters while others are off mid-deep points. Try fishing around structure in 2 - 10 ft of water or drop offs using worms or crickets.

CRAPPIE

Crappie can be caught around structure at different depths. Fishing with minnows or different colored jigs may produce the most success.

CATFISH

Try fishing for catfish along creek channels and deep structure. Brush piles in 8 - 10 ft of water that were added in January should be holding catfish. Tight lining with stink baits, liver or worms are the best ways to harvest these fish.

 

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

GPS Coordinates for brush piles that were added 1/12/16 are listed below.
