PQ 9 lb LMB

A 9 pound bass caught at Lake Tangipahoa.

Bass are schooling and biting well, especially on the north end of the lake.  Try topwater lures, soft plastics, and spinnerbaits in shallow water in the grass, and also around the willow trees.


Bream fishing is good right now.  One angler caught 70 in two days during the full moon.  Try fishing in about 4 feet of water around the banks.  Redworms and crickets are working the best.


Some good size Black Crappie are being caught in the willows.  One angler caught 10 last weekend, while another caught 18 fishing in the willows about 7 feet deep.



A lot of catfish are being caught with the higher water.  Most anglers are having success on cutbait and worms, see picture below...
