Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 3/22/2023 3:20:16 PM
Species Detail
Bass Bass fishing slowed down over the last week. Reports have come in from anglers catching them in all water depths using everything from jigs to frogs. Most good catches are coming from backwater areas with cover and clearer water.
Crappie The crappie reports have been slow this week as well. Most have come from 10-15 feet of water on structure. Jigs have been more popular than minnows. Look for them to move back into the grass as the water temps rise back out of the 50s.
Catfish The catfish bite has been good. Look for fish just off the main channel out of the current. Anglers having the most success are tightlining with cut shad.
