Fishing Report

Columbus Lake - 6/26/2017 2:00:05 PM

With all the recent rainfall, the bite has slowed down considerably. The bass reports remain fair, with water clarity playing a big factor. It took 9.47lbs to win the Thursday evening fruitjar this past week (3 fish limit). Some anglers are hitting the gravel pits with t-rigged plastics catching most of the bass. Also try swimming a pig-n-jig thru the water willows along the banks and along points. Don’t over look a topwater bite around the grass with frogs and buzzbaits during the twilight hours of the day. The crappie reports are slow. The few crappie being caught are coming from deeper banks in the old river runs around laydowns and the gravel pits. Try both minnows and jigs to see which the fish prefer. The catfish bite is good with some nice catches showing up below the dam. Most catfish baits (liver, nightcrawlers, cutbait) are all catching a few fish. Jug fishing is producing some fish right now along the channel.
