Fishing Report

Okatibbee Reservoir - 8/14/2017 2:38:39 PM

CRAPPIE

Most all the fish should be back to deeper water now.  Recent success was reported using small crank baits while trolling the creek channels.  Some recent success was reported fishing deep, but the catch is still on the slow side.   New structures were added Saturday 2/25/17.  See the new GPS locations below. 

 

BASS

Bass bite continues to be good.  Carolina rigs fished slowly can be productive.  Top water frogs fished slow in vegetation should also be productive. Crank baits along the rocks or deep diving off points with should produce a few fish.  Bass fishing has been rated as good over the last week.

 

CATFISH

Catfish can be targeted with trot lines and jugs out in open water. Tightlining on the bottom with liver, worms or blood baits can also be very good methods for harvesting catfish this time of year.  Catfish catch over the last week has been rated as very good.

BREAM

Bream should be holding in 2 - 4 ft. of water around brush piles or other types of natural structure. Start at 2 feet and increase depth until you find them using crickets or worms.   The catch was reported as very good in the grass when the water was up, but it slows down when was lowered.  Overall rated as fair.
