BASS

Neshoba LMB Record

Neshoba record bass

New Lake Record recently caught by Austin Vowell weighing 14 lbs 5 ozs.  Congratulations Austin, thats a fish of a lifetime!

Bass had been moving up on their beds but the cooler temps.  temporarily back them off of the shallows. They are slowly coming back into 2 to 3 ft of water.  Areas along the dam that contain structure are still holding fish. Spinner baits and crank baits work worked well this week.  There continue to be reports of largemouth bass caught between 3 and 8 pounds.  The big fish are there to be caught, but it takes a lot of patience to be successful.

CATFISH

Try catfish in 8 - 10 ft of water around brush piles or along creek channels. Liver, minnows or worms are best bets for baits.  Several nice 2 to 3 lb fish have been reported using liver fishing on the bottom off the road but action has been a little slow.

BREAM

Bream should be targeted at depths of 8 - 10 ft around creek channels and structure. Tightlining on the bottom with red worms or crickets are the best methods this time of year.  There are no current reports at this time.

Neshoba Crappie 17

CRAPPIE

Crappie have started to move up around tops and the small island.  Tipping with a small minnow could help increase your chances. The crappie bite continues to be good with catches being made in 2 to 3 feet of water. The best luck has been with blue/white, black/green, and solid green jigs this past week. The catch continues to be good.
