Fishing & Boating

Fishing Report

Aliceville Lake - 8/8/2022 7:02:50 PM
Species Detail
Bass The bass bite has been slow over the last week. Points and laydowns along the channel are holding a few fish as well as deeper water in the old river runs like Camp Pratt. The best baits on the channel have been spinnerbaits and shallow to mid-running square-billed crankbaits. Texas-rigged plastics have been a good choice on the old river run at Pratts. Frogs, buzzbaits, and swimbaits may get you a quality bite early and late in the day around any vegetation close to deeper water.
Crappie The small number of crappie anglers fishing have been catching a few by targeting standing timber in 6 to 10 ft. of water and deeper ledges off the old river runs. Minnows have been the best bet, but that can change daily.
Catfish The catfish bite is fair to good along the navigation channel and the mouths of the old river runs. Trotlines and jugs baited with cutbait and/or small whole shad have been producing fish. Any current seems to improve the bite.
