Fishing Report

Neshoba County Lake - 8/20/2019 4:00:08 PM


Bass fishing has been good. Try fishing where the depth drops 3 - 6 feet. Target these fish using spinnerbaits or slow rising jerkbaits. Bass become more active early in the morning and late in the afternoon. During this time topwater lures can produce some exciting strikes. Here's a picture of a nice bass recently caught. 



Bream fishing has been fair. Fish have been caught in a variety of different areas of the lake. Try fishing early in the morning or late in the afternoon with crickets and small worms. 



Crappie fishing has been slow lately. Some crappie can be caught in around the white water lilies. Use a variety of different colored jigs or minnows to catch these fish. 



Catfish have been biting good. Catfish can be caught in deeper water using chicken liver or cut bait. Some anglers have been catching nice size catfish at night.
