Columbus Lake

The water is still a bit dirty but fish are getting caught as more and more anglers hit the water. Both the bass and crappie can be considered good. For crappie, try finding some cleaner water in the backs of the old river runs and in the gravel pits. Try using both minnows and jigs to see which the fish prefer for that day. Try dark/bright color combos like black and chartreuse or pink in dirty water situations. The bass bite continues to be fair to good depending on water clarity. It took a little over 16 pounds to win high school bass tournament there this past Saturday. Bass are shallow and are coming on Texas-rigged plastics, dark colored jigs, buzzbaits, spinnerbaits, and frogs. Spawning activity continues in the cleaner backwaters. Keep in mind that the backwaters with growing vegetation will clear up quicker than those backwaters without any vegetation. The catfish anglers are fishing below the dam and along the channel with some success. Shad and nightcrawlers have been best baits.
