Fishing Report

Tombigbee State Park - 8/14/2017 10:37:25 AM

Not much has changed this week as the bite continues to be a bite slow in the late summer. The bass anglers are throwing small spinnerbaits, shakeyheads, and jigs around deeper shoreline cover with some success, but the key is to fish slowly. Try a small buzzbait, frogs, or prop baits during the early and late hours around the water willow. The bream report is fair as well. For best results, tight-line nightcrawlers or crickets in 6 – 10 ft of water off the ends of the piers and along shoreline cover. The crappie reports are slow. The crappie are suspended off main lake points and around any deep water cover. Don’t be intimidated by fishing up to 20 ft deep for them as they will congregate during the summertime around that really deep cover. Try using both jigs and minnows to see which the fish prefer.
