Fishing Report

Lake Lowndes - 5/24/2017 12:10:07 PM

The bass reports have slowed down recently. Fish are moving into their summertime patterns. Some fish are remaining shallow to take advantage of the bream that are bedding while others are moving out toward the creek channel and deeper drop offs. The best baits for both bank and boat anglers are Texas-rigged plastics, spinnerbaits, and topwater. Bream anglers are using corks and tightlining crickets or red worms to catch their fish. Some fish are still on the beds while others are holding just out from their bedding areas. The crappie fishing has slowed down some as the fish to continue to move toward their summer time holes. The best areas have been deep structure and cover. Jigs are producing the most bites, but minnows may out produce them on any given day. The catfish bite is fair with most fish coming out of deeper water around drop-offs and creek channels on nightcrawlers and rooster liver.
