Fishing ReportColumbus Lake - 8/14/2017 9:47:55 AM
The bass reports have been slow to fair since the late summer grind is here but a few folks are finding some quality fish. It took 7.22 pounds to win the 3 fish tournament this past Thursday evening. Target the deep side of channel bends with Texas-rigged plastics and square-billed cranks. Also, bass are being caught off shoreline cover on the channel and the gravel pits near the east bank ramp. Anglers here are throwing texas-rigged plastics mostly, with spinnerbaits and frogs catching a few active fish out of the grass in the pits. The catfish reports were slow to fair this week. Catfish are biting along the channel on jugs and trotlines and also below the dam on rod-n-reel. Nightcrawlers, liver and cutbait have been best baits. The crappie bite has been slow. Try targeting old river runs with deep banks and laydowns using minnows and jigs.
