Fishing Report

Lake Mike Conner - 8/14/2017 8:36:37 AM

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

Water temperature: 90

Visibility: 48"


Bass are biting well; watermelon-colored soft plastics along the north side of the lake have been productive.  Smoke-colored flukes were working well around the edges of the vegetation.  Lake Mike Conner is bass crowded, and the harvesting of small bass is encouraged.


Bream fishing is fair on redworms and crickets in about 2 feet of water.  Blue and black jigs with a chartreuse tail are also catching some fish. 


No current reports on crappie. Try fishing in 8 to 10 feet of water with small minnows.

Mike C record crappie

The new lake record white crappie, 2.2 pounds.


Catfishing has been good at night.  Try worms and liver fished on the bottom.

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.
