Fishing Report

Tombigbee State Park - 5/24/2017 12:57:09 PM

The bream report is good. Anglers are using both tighline and cork fishing techniques baited with either redworms or crickets. The bream are showing up in the middle and backs of the coves close to spawning areas. The bass bite is good as well. Texas-rigged baby brush hogs and ole monster worms have been the lures of choice this past week. Look for the bass to be hanging around any bream beds you find and off the points next to deep water. Don’t overlook a topwater bite with buzzbaits and frogs early and late in the day. If overcast conditions are present, the topwater bite may last on into the day. The crappie bite can be considered good as both bank and boat anglers are catching fish in the 10 – 14 ft depth range. Both minnows and jigs are getting bites, but one may out produce the other on any given day. A few catfish anglers have been having success tightlining off the pier with liver.
