Tippah County Lake

Tuesday, March 21, 2017 10:54 AM

Water temps have dropped significantly last week thanks to cold snap and the accompanying rainfall. The lake is recovering slowly as the water temps are in the low 60's with good visibility. The bass bite is fair to good as the fish are in their prespawn pattern. Most any creek ditches leading to shallow flats and other traditional spawning areas should be holding fish. Anglers are using rattletraps and spinnerbaits to locate fish, while T-rigged/C-rigged/shakeyhead plastics are being used to cover an area once fish are located. The crappie bite has been fair. Both jigs and minnows are both producing a few bites along primary drop-offs and sunken brush tops on the lower end of the lake close to the dam. Trolling jigs, crankbaits or minnows is a good technique to locate fish and brushtops. Some fish are starting to move a bit shallower in preparation of the spawn and are holding on primary drop-offs with any cover on them. The bream bite is fair. Tight-lining crickets or wigglers along drop-offs has been the best technique. A few anglers have reported catching bream on crappie jigs.
