Fishing ReportTombigbee State Park - 11/12/2019 1:20:20 PM
|Largemouth Bass||Bass fishing has been poor to fair. Anglers were having some success with finesse rigs such as shaky heads.|
|Crappie||No anglers have been fishing for crappie from the bank.|
|Bream||Bream fishing is slow. Red worms and meal worms are the most popular baits. Most anglers are restricted to bank access only. Any woody cover should hold a few fish.|
|Catfish||The catfish bite is fair. Try targeting the areas around the fishing piers and deeper points with night crawlers and/or liver. Tight lining is a popular technique for catfish.|
