Fishing ReportAliceville Lake - 9/19/2017 10:28:12 AM
Bass anglers are targeting the lower end of the lake around the river run at Camp Pratt, Big Coalfire creek, and the Rivermont area. Target deeper banks with wood or grass in Pratt’s. Best lures have been frogs and buzzbaits during low light conditions. During the day, Texas-rigged creature baits and jigs have been popular. In Big Coalfire, target the creek channel drop-offs with jigs and Texas-rigs for best results. In Rivermont, anglers are targeting both woody and grassy cover with a variety of topater lures and Texas-rigged plastics. The catfish bite is fair to good along the navigation channel and the mouths of the old river runs. Cutbait/whole gizzard shad and liver have been best baits. Since Aliceville is a shared waterbody with Alabama, the 1 catfish over 34 inch rule applies. More and more crappie anglers are starting to show up in the Pratt’s area since the water temps have begun to fall. Most are targeting the deeper banks that have wood and grass. Both jigs and minnows are catching fish.
