Late Fall/Winter fishing report: A good second choice (behind
Bay Springs) for some decent winter fishing for bass and crappie.
Both bass and crappie will be relating to the creek channel. A good
depth finder is important, but once found, the crappie and bass
will readily hit jigging spoons, hair jigs, and small plastics.
Best depths will range from 15 to 30 feet. Warmer days will push
some fish shallow around the flooded cover. If this occurs,
suspending jerkbaits, spinnerbaits and crankbaits will be good bait
choices to find active fish. Contact Jim Lusby at the lake
(662-869-2009) for up-to-date info. Weekly fishing reports will
pick back up the first week of February.
Anglers planning on hitting the lake need to remember there is a
slot limit on bass. All bass between 16 - 22 inches must be
released immediately, and only one fish over 22 inches may be kept.
The daily bag limit for bass is 10. Any and all walleye
caught must be released immediately. The bream limit is
100 aggregate (both bluegill and redear) total per angler. The
daily limit on crappie is 30. The catfish daily limit is 10.
