Fishing Report

Lake Tom Bailey - 8/20/2019 4:02:19 PM

Bass

Target bass where depths drop from 3 - 6 feet. Use lipless crankbaits and jerkbaits to catch these fish. When fishing around structure use Colorado bladed spinnerbaits. They have a deeper, slower vibration which may trigger a strike during the hot days of the summer.  

 

Bream 

Fish for bream in the shallow coves near the fish attractors. Use crickets or small worms to catch these fish. 

 

Crappie

Crappie are in deep water. Try fishing along the creek channel. You can catch these fish using jigs or minnows.

 

Catfish

Try fishing for catfish in deep areas of the lake. Look for pockets that are around 12 - 15 feet deep. Target these fish using cutbaits and liver.
