Bass have begun to move back to the shallows as the temperature rises. Try fishing in shallow water using crank baits and spinner baits.


Bream are being caught near structure in 6 - 8 ft of water using red worms and crickets.


Crappie have been caught in 6 - 10 ft of water along creek channels and deep structure. Slow trolling in these areas with minnows or jigs can be very productive this time of year.

Catfish can be targeted on the bottom around brush piles. Worms, liver and blood baits will be the best choices for catching 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
