Bass fishing has been tough lately. Some bass may still be shallow while others are foraging for food in open water. Try fishing the levees using spinner baits, different colored deep diving crank baits and soft plastic worms.
Bream fishing has been slow with fish being caught off points in depths between 4 - 8 feet, while others are still in shallow waters foraging for food. Try fishing near structure in shallow coves using crickets and worms.
Crappie fishing has slowed down. These fish are being caught along the creek channels in the north end. Try fishing these areas using minnows and jigs.
Fishing on the bottom in creek channels with liver, worms or cut baits should be the best method for harvesting catfish this time of year.
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
