TOMBIGBEE STATE PARK:
Not much has changed since the dog days of summer have arrived.
The fishing is slow for just about everything. The bass reports continue to be fair
with a decent early and late topwater bite on buzzbaits and tiny torpedoes.
During the day, try main lake points and drop-offs with T-rigged and C-rigged plastics
and shakey head worms. The bream bite is fair also. Most bream anglers are
fishing in the 4-8 ft range close to traditional bedding areas. Both crickets
and red wigglers have been best baits. Most anglers are choosing to tightline
for the bigger bream but you can catch a few under cork. The crappie has slowed
due to the heat but a few are still being caught suspended off the points in 9
to 12 feet using jigs and minnows as either could out produce the other on any
given day. A few catfish are being caught late in the evening tight-lining
nightcrawler and liver off main lake points and off the pier.
