Fishing Report

Lake Tom Bailey - 4/18/2018 7:43:07 AM

Bass

Bass are preparing to move into the shallow coves. Try using different color spinner baits and crank baits in various depths to target these fish.

BREAM

Bream are starting to move shallow water to spawn. Try fishing the bedding areas and around standing structure in 4 - 8 ft of water using worms or crickets.

CRAPPIE

Some crappie have moved to shallower waters, but some may still be deep due to cold fronts moving in and out of the area. These fish may be caught at different depths using jigs and minnows.

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 this time of year. Tight lining with stink baits, liver or worms are the best ways to harvest these fish.

 

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Fisheries Biologists use various sampling methods to assess the fish populations in the State’s waters. Sampling results for selected water bodies are summarized in Reel Facts Sheets

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