Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 8/14/2017 9:39:34 AM

The bass reports continue to be slow to fair as the late summertime grind is here. For bass, points and laydowns along the channel are holding a few fish as well as deeper old river runs like Camp Pratt and Coalfire. Best baits on the channel have been spinnerbaits and shallow to mid-running square-billed crankbaits. Texas-rigged plastics have been good choices on the old river run at Pratts. Frogs, buzzbaits and weedless paddletail swimbaits may get you a quality bite early in late in the day around the grass. The catfish bite is fair to good along the navigation channel and the mouths of the old river runs. Cutbait and liver have been best baits. Any current should help the bite. The Lux has been getting a little attention from catfish anglers as of late. The crappie bite is slow, but a few fish are being caught in the timber at Pratts. Minnows have been the best bait.
