Water temps that were dropping last week are now on the rise as day time temps are reaching the upper 80’s again. The bass bite is fair but should be picking up as we move into fall. Target shallow grass with spinnerbaits, flukes, weedless paddletail swimbaits, and buzzbaits for best results. A hollow-bodied frog may get you a quality bite early and late in the day. Other bass reports are coming from the channel and the old river runs around laydowns. Best baits on the channel have been Texas-rigged creature bait plastics, spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Some schooling action as reported last week around the mouth of the old Tombigbee River. The crappie anglers are starting to hit the old river runs and target the deeper banks. Best areas will be deeper banks that have wood or a combination wood and grass. Best depths are 4 to 6 ft. Both minnows and jigs are catching fish with jigs working better in dirty water. The catfish reports are fair. A few catfish are being caught on trotlines fished off the channel. Gizzard shad (cut or whole) has been working lately.
