Fishing ReportTippah County Lake - 4/16/2018 10:36:17 AM
Surface water temps are running in the low 60’s and is slowly continuing to rise. The recent cold front and accompanying rain slowed fishing traffic down. The bream are starting to bite. Anglers are catching them in transition areas with tight lined redworms. Now is a good time of year to catch some really big redear. The bass bite has been fair to good. Most anglers are targeting brush near spawning flats and points with some success. Soft plastics either Texas-rigged, Carolina-rigged or weightless are what most anglers are using. On windy days, anglers are throwing a spinnerbaits and lipless crankbaits. The crappie bite is fair to good with most anglers using minnows as of late. Anglers are targeting brushtops in 6 – 10 ft of water. No catfish report as of late.
MDWFP personnel sank donated Christmas trees in Tippah Lake this past winter. The brush piles are a good way to upcycle leftover Christmas trees and create fishing hot spots. Here are the coordinates for those brush piles.
