Fishing Report

Lake Monroe - 11/15/2017 5:44:01 AM

Water temps are around the 60 degree mark. Fishing pressure continues to be low, but a few anglers are coming out in search of bass and bream. For bass, anglers are throwing spinnerbaits, topwater lures, and weedless soft jerkbaits like senkos and flukes along the flats and points. If the bite seems a bit tough, slow down and back off the bank to the drop-offs and try using Texas/Carolina-rigs, jigs, and shakeyheads. A few bream anglers continue to target the piers and drop-offs with redworms and crickets fished either under a cork or on a tight line. Still not much to report for a catfish bite except a few bream anglers are catching a catfish or two on their tightlined redworm presentation.


Anglers need to keep in mind the size and creel limits of the lake:

Bass: Limit of 10 per day, bass between 14 - 22 inches must be released immediately

Crappie: Limit of 20 per day with no length limit

Bream: Limit of 100 per day with no length limit

Catfish: Limit of 10 per day with no length limit
