Fishing Report

Lake Tom Bailey - 6/27/2017 1:39:42 PM

BASS

Locate bass by using deep diving crankbaits and other deep water lures around the drain structure and along the creek channel. Bass should be holding in these areas at 8 - 12 ft. On warmer days fish may be in shallower water around willow stubs or along the rocks at the dam. Soft plastics and jigs can be productive in these spots. There are no current reports at this time.

CRAPPIE

Crappie will be in deep water around submerged structure and creek channels. Ledges along the channel prove to be crappie hot spots this time of year. Fish may be anywhere in the water column so fish at different depths until crappie are located. Minnows or jigs tipped with a nibble should produce some nice fish.  There are no current reports at this time.

BREAM

Tom Bailey has a good population of quality size redear. These fish can be located around deep structure this time of year.  Bream fishing has taken off over the last couple of weeks.   A report of some nice catches of both bluegill and redear was recently made.

CATFISH

Try for catfish along creek channels and deep structure. Brush piles in 8 - 10 ft of water that were added last January should be holding catfish this time of year. Tightlining with stink baits, liver or worms are best ways to harvest catfish this time of year. Ther are no current reports at this time.

 

GPS Coordinates for brush piles that were added 1/12/16 are listed below.
