Fishing Report

For bass, most anglers are hitting the backwater areas that have some sort of deeper water refuge. A good example of this would be Camp Pratt as it has the shallow grass flats along with deeper standing timber nearby. Anglers are targeting the grass edges early and late in the day with topwaters like buzzbaits and frogs. Move towards the deeper water as the day progresses. Other anglers are hitting the mouths of the creeks and ditches along the navigation channel. The mouth of the Luxapallila Creek is a good spot this time of year. Try crankbaits, jigs, and Texas-rigged plastics here. The catfish bite is fair to good along the navigation channel and the mouths of the old river runs. Most catfish anglers are fishing trotlines and jugs with cutbait and liver. Some anglers are having success hand grabbing. Anglers need to keep in mind that you may only keep one fish over 34 inches. The crappie bite is slow but fish can still be caught. Target the deeper grass beds in those same backwater areas bass anglers are hitting. Try both minnows and jigs as one may out produce the other on any given day.


Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters.   Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets.
