TOMBIGBEE STATE PARK:
Water temps are in the mid to upper 60s. Bass are in all stages of the spawn. A decent shallow water bite is being reported for both bass and crappie. Crappie are coming out of laydowns at the mouths of the coves and around any cover along the banks. Most crappie are being caught on crappie jigs or minnows, but small spinners and crankbaits might pick up some as well. The bass are in similar areas as the crappie and are also in shallow water as the spawn continues. Most anglers are using small spinnerbaits, crankbaits and t-rigged lizards. Soft plastic jerkbaits like flukes and senkos are also good lures to try. The moving baits work well for pre and post spawn fish while the soft plastics work well for those on or near the bed. The bream are starting to move shallow as well and are being caught around shallow cover in the coves. The best baits for bream have been small jigs, spinners, and meal worms.
