ABERDEEN LAKE (TENN-TOM):
Best reports are coming from the crappie anglers. Most anglers are targeting the old river runs and in lower end of the old river itself. Crappie are coming out of 4 to 6 ft of water, holding on any cover whether it be grass or wood. Both jigs and minnows are working, but jigs work better in dirty water situations. The bass reports continue to be fair to good. The bigger sloughs and backwater areas where shad are showing up are best areas. Best lures have been shallow crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and t-rigged plastics. The riprap at the upper end of the lake has also been popular, particularly for spotted bass. T-rigged brushogs, spinnerbait and crankbaits are working there. The catfish bite is fair. Most anglers are hitting the mouths of the old river runs and also the Tombigbee River itself. Whole or cut shad are best baits right now.
