Fishing Report

Tombigbee State Park - 9/19/2017 2:12:03 PM

Water temps have came up a bit from last week due to the hot days we’ve had recently. Most anglers hitting the lake are targeting either bass or crappie. The bass are starting to move toward the coves and are holding around woody and grassy cover. As we move into the cool season, look for this bite to pick up. Best baits for bass have been Texas-rigged soft plastics (both weighted and weightless), spinnerbaits, and shakeyheads. Early and late in the day, target the water willow surrounding the lake with flukes, frogs, and buzzbaits. For crappie, anglers are targeting any cover in 10 to 20 ft of water off main lake points. Both jigs and minnows should catch you some fish as either could out produce the other on any given day. The few bream reports are coming from the bank anglers fishing from the piers. Best bream baits have been red worms and meal worms. Tight-line these baits in 6 to 10 ft of water for best results.
