Fishing Report

Moon Lake - 11/14/2017 10:19:58 AM


Crappie fishing is fair to slow right now at Moon, and few anglers have been fishing lately.  Look for most fish holding in deeper, cooler water areas. Try fishing around fishing piers to the north of the Paradise Point ramp or along the eastern shoreline.  Fish are being caught with jigs and minnows in anywhere between 6 and 12 feet of water.   Some fish may still be holding in shallower areas around the island.



Fall fishing is usually good at Moon!  For bass, try fishing soft plastics or spinnerbaits along the cypress knees or other structure in 4 - 6 feet of water.  Fishing around the island is a good place to start. Lots of the bass at Moon are in the 2-3 pound range. Remember, the creel limit for bass is 5 fish per day of any size.



Catfish fishing is normally fair to slow this time of year at Moon.  Try tightlining on the bottom with nightcrawlers or other catfish baits, or try fishing trotlines along the shallow flats in the northern arm of the lake. 



There's no new reports from bream anglers, but bream fishing is usually slow at Moon this time of year.  Try using crickets around structure in 2 to 5 feet of water.
