Fishing Report

Lake Claude Bennett - 11/13/2018 3:27:06 PM

Water Temperature: 53 F          Water Visibility: 42"

BASS

No recent reports. Target bass that are foraging on schools of shad. Try using spinnerbaits and shallow swimming crankbaits to catch these fish.  Remember to keep small bass to encourage growth of the remaining population.  The daily creel limit for bass is 30 per person.

BREAM

Bream fishing has been poor. These fish are being caught in shallow water around structure. Try fishing with red worms and crickets around the wooden piers below the campground.

CRAPPIE

Crappie fishing has been good. Some crappie are moving towards structure, but a few should still be in deeper water. Try fishing the creek channel and past the drain pipe along dam with minnows or jigs.

CATFISH

No recent reports. Try targeting these fish on the bottom in the creek channels using chicken liver or cut bait.

 

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters. Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets
