Bass can be targeted in deeper water where structure is
present. Feeder creeks or ledges along the main creek

coves, a few fish have been harvested lately in the 1 to 3 lb
range. The cooler weather this week may push them deeper for
a few days. The bass bite has been very good over last week
with crank and spinner baits in 6 to 8 ft. of water.
Crappie will be in deep water this time of year along creek
channels and deep structure. Fish may be anywhere in the water
column so try multiple depths until fish are located. Trolling
in these areas with minnows or jigs are very productive
ways to catch crappie during the early part of the year.
There are no current reports at this time.
Catfish can be targeted in deep water around creek ledges and
structure. Worms, liver and blood baits will be best choices for
baits. There are no current reports at this time.
Bream may be found in deeper water off of points and around
structure. Tight lining on the bottom with crickets and worms will
be the most effective method for harvesting good size bream
this time of year. Most satches are being made in about 8 to
10 feet of water. Bream catches have increased over the last
week Look for it to pick up even more with a few sunny
