Bass

Bass are biting in 6 to 8 feet of water on soft plastics and suspending jerkbaits. Try fishing off points and weed lines.  Bass are schooling in open water areas and can be caught with flukes, rat-l-traps, and suspending jerk-baits. 

Bream 

Bream fishing has been fair; try crickets and worms in 3 to 6 feet of water and around structure.

Crappie 

No current reports available.  Small minnows and jigs fished in deeper water should produce some fish.

Catfish 

Currently there are no reports on catfish, but Lake Tangipahoa has some big blue cats!  Try chicken livers or nightcrawlers on the bottom. Look to fish deep pockets where fish may nestled away. 

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
