Fishing Report

Eagle Lake - 7/24/2017 1:50:50 PM

Yore Country Store and The Landing have plenty of bait and supplies. 

***New crappie regulations went into effect October 1, 2015.  The creel limit was reduced from 50 to 30 fish per angler, and all fish 11" and under must be released immediately.***

 

Bass

Above: A 9.8 pound Eagle Lake bass

Bass fishing has been slow recently due to the hot weather.  Try topwater and soft plastics along pads in Float Row and around cypress trees early morning and late evening.  During the day, fish soft plastics slow along deep ledges.  Also try deep-diving crankbaits and spinnerbaits around the piers. Largemouth bass must be over 16" to keep.

Bream

Some nice Bluegill and a couple of Black Crappie caught at Eagle. 

Bream fishing has been good recently.  Bream can be caught out of holes in the vegetation using crickets and redworms.  Some very nice Bluegill are being caught in shallow water and around the piers.

Crappie

Crappie fishing has been slow, but not many anglers have been out to get reports from.  Fish deep for crappie this time of year.  Troll deep ledges with roadrunners and fish deep piers with  minnows.  Remember, crappie must be over 11" to keep at Eagle Lake.  Also try the cypress trees across from the boat ramp and around the piers with minnows in 8 - 12 feet of water.

Catfish

The catfish bite has slowed some.  Try fishing at night with worms, minnows, or your favorite catfish bait.

White bass

White bass can be found schooling on shad off of points and along dropoffs. There is no limit on these fish, but there is a 6 fish limit on hybrid striped bass and they must be over 15" to keep.
