Fishing Report

Tombigbee State Park - 4/23/2018 2:46:33 PM

The bite for just about everything was good till this past weekend’s cold front hit. The bass spawn is in full swing and the bream are feeding up for their spawn that’s not far off. Bass anglers are using Texas-rigged and shakeyhead soft plastics for those fish on the bed. For the fish up shallow but aren’t spawning, weightless soft plastics like flukes and senkos are working. A spinnerbait would be a good alternative on windy days. Crappie are still fairly shallow, hanging around any shallow cover they can find. The best depths have been 5 – 10 ft of water. Both crappie jigs and minnows are producing fish, but one may out produce the other on any given day. The bream are moving shallow but aren’t spawning. Most are being caught around shallow cover in the coves. The best baits for bream have been small jigs, spinners, and meal worms. Look for a few redear to start spawning this weekend with the impending full moon.
