Fishing ReportAliceville Lake - 11/13/2017 7:28:44 AM
The bass reports are fair. Some anglers are fishing the creeks and the riprap right below Columbus Dam and reporting a few decent fish coming on spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Most other reports are coming from the lower end of the lake like the old river at Camp Pratt, James and Kincaid Creek, and Big Coalfire. Best baits have been Texas-rigged plastics, shallow crankbaits, and spinnerbaits. The mouth of the Lux can also be good right now. This time of year a shad pattern is usually the best option as the fish are feeding up for winter. If you can find the shad, the bass aren’t too far away. The crappie reports are fair to good. Most anglers are working the timber in the backwater areas like Pratt’s, Coalfire, and Swedenburg’s. Like the bass, crappie are heavily feeding on the shad before winter gets here. Both jigs and minnows are working right now. Catfish reports are fair with most folks are hitting the channel and the mouths of the old river runs with jugs and rod-n-reels with some success. Cut shad seems to be working well right now.
