Fishing Report

Aberdeen Lake - 11/13/2017 7:24:37 AM

The bass bite is fair, but folks are catching some fish. Anglers are looking for actively feeding fish in the backwaters. Lures like spinnerbaits and crankbaits are good choices for searching areas. Alternative techniques like shad colored flukes and swim jigs are good lures to have tied on. The rip rap above the old Tombigbee River is also a good area to find fish actively feeding. The key there is covering as much water as possible with the search baits mentioned above. The crappie reports are still fair to good. Best depths have been 4 – 6 ft deep around any woody cover along the channel and in the sloughs. Both jigs and minnows are catching fish but one may out produce the other on any given day. The catfish bite is fair. Most anglers are hitting the old river runs and also the Tombigbee River itself with tightlined cut/whole shad and liver. Jug fishing those same areas should also produce some fish.
