Fishing Report

Lake Tom Bailey - 6/19/2018 2:21:58 PM

Bass

Most bass have moved from shallow waters into medium depths of 4 - 10 ft. Try using medium diving crank baits, and soft plastic in these areas to catch these fish.

BREAM

Bream are in the shallow waters. Try fishing around standing structure in 2 - 6 ft of water using worms or crickets.

CRAPPIE

Crappie can be caught around structure at different depths. Fishing with minnows or different colored jigs may produce the most success.

CATFISH

Try fishing for catfish along creek channels and deep structure. Brush piles in 8 - 10 ft of water that were added in January should be holding catfish. Tight lining with stink baits, liver or worms are the best ways to harvest these fish. The season for hand grabbing started on May 1 and ends July 15.
