Simpson County Lake - 11/13/2018 2:58:36 PM


Fish for bass in shallow water around structure. Try using soft plastic swimbaits around shallow structure. Crankbaits and spinnerbaits are good for bass foraging on schools of fish. 


Bream can be caught in shallow water. Anglers have been having success fishing in and around shallow structure with redworms and crickets.


Crappie are along creek channels and deep structure. Target these fish using a variety of different colored jigs or minnows.


Catfish can be caught on the bottom in 6 - 12 feet of water. Fishing with liver and cut bait should produce the best results.
