Fishing Report

Tombigbee State Park - 5/24/2023 3:34:42 PM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass The bass bite is fair. Anglers are targeting shallow cover early and late in the day with topwater lures like buzzbaits and poppers. During the day, anglers are moving a bit deeper and throwing Texas-rigs and crankbaits around structure.
Crappie The crappie bite is slow. Anglers are targeting cover in 15 – 20 ft of water with both minnows and jigs.
Bream Bream anglers are targeting the 2 – 5 ft depth range in pockets and coves with both crickets and worms. Any cover near traditional bedding areas is a good bet. Tightlining worms or crickets will usually get some bites.
Catfish A few catfish are being caught around the piers with tightlined worms.
