Fishing Report

Aberdeen Lake - 8/14/2017 9:38:07 AM

The bass reports continue to be slow to fair. Numbers of bass in the 10 to 13 inch range have been showing up along the navigation channel. The best chance for a quality bite has been in the deeper sloughs around wood and grass. Buzzbaits, swimbaits and frogs have been the best bait choices early while dark colored Texas-rigged plastics are getting the nod on into the day. Best baits on the channel have been spinnerbaits, square-billed crankbaits and Texas-rigged plastics. The few anglers targeting catfish are using jugs and trotlines on the navigation channel and are having good success. The few crappie reports have been slow. Crappie anglers are fishing the old river runs and targeting the deeper banks that have cover (wood or grass or both) with minnows.
