Bass

PQ 9 lb LMB

A 9 pound bass caught at Lake Tangipahoa.

No current repots on bass fishing.  Try topwater lures, soft plastics, and spinnerbaits in shallow water in the grass, and also around the willow trees.

Bream

No current reports on bream fishing, but it typically picks up considerably a couple of days before and after a full moon.  Try fishing in about 4 feet of water around the banks.  Redworms and crickets are working the best.

Crappie

Crappie fishing is fair.  One angler caught 18 fishing in the willows about 7 feet deep.

Catfish

The catfish bite is fair, see picture below...
