Fishing Report

Tippah County Lake - 1/12/2018 10:54:38 AM

Late Fall/Winter fishing report: An often over-looked State fishing lake during the winter months. Mainlake points and ditches, or creek channels will hold good numbers of quality bass and crappie. Jig-n-pig combos, 3/4 to 1 oz. spinnerbaits, Alabama-rigs, jigging spoons, and small hair jigs will catch both bass and crappie. For bream try tight-lined redworms for best results. For up-to-date info, give Jim Cutberth a call at the lake (662-837-9850). Weekly fishing reports will pick back up in February.

MDWFP personnel sank donated Christmas trees in Tippah Lake recently. The brush piles are a good way to upcycle leftover Christmas trees and create fishing hot spots. Here are the coordinates for those brush piles.
