Fishing Report

Lake Mike Conner - 5/14/2018 11:18:17 AM

For more information, call the lake office at (601) 765-4024.

Water Temperature: 86

Visibility: 26" 

Bass

Above:  Kary Young, Jr. with the current lake record bass, 4.9 pounds

Bass fishing is fair.  Some fish are also being caught on top water lures, mostly late in the afternoon. Most fish are in the 12" to 14" range.  Mike Conner is bass crowded, and the harvest of small bass is encouraged.

Bream

Bream fishing has been pretty good; redworms and crickets are working fairly well.

Crappie

Crappie fishing is slow, but anglers fishing around the dam valve and piers are catching a few on small jigs.

Catfish

The catfish bite has picked up.  One angler using nightcrawlers caught four fish weighing 10, 12, 21, and 22 pounds recently.  Try worms or chicken livers fished on the bottom.

 

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

New fish attractors were added at this lake to improve fish habitat.  The brushpiles were added in various depths, but most are located in 3 - 6 ft. of water.  Five brushpiles were sunk on the levee in 15 - 20 ft.  Below are GPS coordinates for some of the sites.  Be sure your GPS is reading decimal degrees (shown below) and not degrees-minutes-seconds when locating these  attractors.
