Fishing ReportTombigbee State Park - 10/16/2017 1:01:45 PM
Water temps are in the low 70s with water clarity around 4ft. The bass, bream, and crappie continue to all be fair. Bream are being caught out of the middle of the coves with small spinners and redworms tightlined on the bottom. The crappie are coming off the deeper, off-shore brushtops. Both jigs and minnows have been working, but let the fish dictate what they are wanting. The bass are holding are just about any shoreline cover. The deeper shoreline cover seems to be holding the more quality fish. Small jigs, shakeyheads, jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits have been best lures. Other lures to consider would be flukes, senkos, and various topwater lures like poppers and walking baits. This time of year, the bass are in “wolfpacks” and feeding up before the winter. If you catch one, more than likely there will be more nearby. A recent survey of the lake showed the bass are overpopulated, so on your next fishing trip, remember to keep a few bass to help out the overall population.
