Late Fall/Winter fishing report: Probably one of the best destinations in Mississippi for cold water bass fishing. Even with water temps falling to the high 30's or low 40's, bass, particularly spotted bass can be caught. Until the hydrilla beds completely die and break up, they will be holding some fish. Texas rigs, jigs, spinnerbaits, and swimbaits are the lures to throw there. Once the water temps drop below 50, target mainlake points with water depths ranging from 25 to 50 feet for best results. A variety of lures can be productive, ranging from 1 oz. spinnerbaits and Alabama rigs to small finesse worms to jigging spoons. Good electronics are a must. Several days of warmer weather will pull the bass up shallow and suspending jerkbaits will be the go-to bait. The crappie bite can be tough, but crappie can be located near the mouths of the big creeks (McDougal, Riddle, Piney Grove and Five Fingers). Small hair jigs tipped with minnows will be your best bet. Weekly fishing reports will pick back up the first week of February.
