Fishing Report

Neshoba County Lake - 7/9/2018 9:41:29 AM

BASS

Some bass are in and around shallow structure. Try fishing the grass lines with top water lures and spinner baits.  Other bass are suspended off of points in medium to deep water. Try using medium diving crank baits and jerk baits to catch these fish. Here's a nice bass recently caught by Mike Varnado. He caught it on a red baby brush hog and it weighed 7.5 lbs. Congrats again to Mike on a great catch. 

BREAM

Bream are being caught in shallow areas of 2 - 6 feet of water. Try fishing with crickets and red worms around shallow structure.

CRAPPIE

Some crappie can be caught in and around vegetation while others have migrated to deeper water. These fish have been caught using either jigs or minnows. 

CATFISH

Try catfish in 10 - 12 feet of water around brush piles or along creek channels. Using liver or cut bait can be the best way to catch these fish. Hand grabbing for catfish is popular this time of year. The season started on May 1 and ends this Sunday on July 15.
