Winter Fishing Tips
Largemouth bass can be caught by fishing in 8 to15 feet of water off of points, docks, brush piles, and along the dam. Try using soft plastics such as: Texas rigs, jigs, Carolina rigs, dropshots, and suspending jerkbaits. Use natural colors like watermelon red, green pumpkin, and pumpkinseed. Use shiner and bluegill colors with hardbaits. Lake Mike Conner is bass crowded so harvesting small bass is encouraged.
Bream can be caught in 5 to 10 feet of water on the northwest side of the lake around brush or stobs. Redear are usually caught on red worms, wax worms and crickets around the piers.
Catfish are usually good on the shallower flats and points. Try cutbait and worms fished on the bottom.
Crappie can be caught around the pier on the east side with minnows and jigs. Also, try to find them in the deeper water (10 to 15 feet) around the levee or around the new fish attractors.
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.
