Fishing ReportAberdeen Lake - 4/23/2018 2:19:46 PM
Like last week, the water is still muddy due to all the rainfall in the areas. The bass reports this past week were fair for some and good for others. Bass are in all stages of the spawn. Most anglers are throwing spinnerbaits and dark colored Texas-rigged plastics. Some anglers are trying topwater lures like frogs and buzzbaits around shallow cover with some success. The crappie reports are still fair to good. Most anglers are using jigs with some sort of chartreuse in them. In the cleaner backwater areas, try minnows as well. A few catfish anglers are using nightcrawlers and cutbait just off the navigation channel to catch their fish. Most anglers are using trotlines or jugs.
Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters. Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets.
