are catching crappie are trolling along the outside edges of
the cypress trees. These anglers are fishing in about 8-10 feet of
water and are fishing about 6 feet deep. You may also try jigging
in brush piles in 4-6 feet of water. Minnows or jigs are the
normal choices for bait at Bee.
For bass, try fishing soft plastics around the cypress trees or
around the docks and piers in the northern arm of the lake in water

choices for bait.
There is a $5 launch fee to use the ramp at Bee Lake.
