Okatibbee Reservoir - 11/12/2019 2:09:56 PM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass Some of the best bass fishing is still at the north end of the lake. During the warmest parts of the day bass move in and around vegetation that's still alive. Try using soft plastic lures or spinnerbaits in these areas.
Crappie Most crappie can be caught in deep water along the edge of the creek channels. A few crappie may still be in shallow water. If your deep try vertical fishing with jigs or minnows. If your fishing in shallow water try using small soft plastic swimbaits.
Bream Fishing near Twitley Branch campground is always a good option. Use red worms or crickets in shallow water.
Catfish Catfish are in deep areas of the lake. Use baits such as worms, liver and blood baits. Anglers have been having success fishing in the spillway.
