ABERDEEN LAKE (TENN-TOM):
Not much change to report as the recent heat wave has slowed things down a bit. The bass reports are again pretty slow. A few bass are being caught but the quality bite is tough to come by. Best lures have been t-rigged plastics, buzzbaits and spinnerbaits. Some anglers are targeting shallow wood on the channel while others are fishing some of the deeper sloughs. Try a frog early and late around any grass in those deeper sloughs. Some anglers are targeting the spotted bass above the old Tombigbee River in the channelized portion. Crankbaits, shakeyheads and spinnerbaits are working here. The few anglers targeting catfish are using jugs and trotlines on the navigation channel. Whole or cut skipjack and shad are the baits of choice. The few crappie reports have been slow to fair. Crappie anglers are fishing the old river runs and targeting the deeper banks with jigs.
