Fishing Report

Tombigbee State Park - 4/16/2018 10:36:53 AM

The surface water temperature is around 64 degrees and the lake is fairly clear. The bite for just about everything has picked up with the rising water temps. The bass have moved shallow to spawn in the backs of pockets and on the flats. Texas-rigged lizards and creature baits are the ticket for these fish. For those fish that have moved shallow, but aren’t spawning, try weightless soft plastics like senkos and trickworms. Spinnerbaits are a good option on windy days. Some reports of anglers catching fish on topwater lures are coming in. Crappie anglers are reporting a fair to good bite. The crappie are coming out of 4 to 10 feet of water around laydowns at the mouths of the coves and around the piers. Both minnows and jigs are catching fish. The bream are starting to move shallow. Anglers are targeting 5 – 10 ft of water with both crickets and redworms. A few catfish anglers are catching some fish around the pier and around laydowns. Most anglers are tight lining worms to catch their fish.
