Species Detail
Bass Bass fishing has been fairly good recently, particularly around the grass patches. Most fish are being caught in around 8-14 feet of water. Finding the baitfish is the key.
Crappie No current reports on crappie fishing; there aren't a lot of anglers hitting the water for them this time of year. The few crappie anglers are hitting the deep ledges and brushpiles in 18 to 30 ft of water. Both jigs and minnows should produce a few bites.
Catfish The catfish bite has slowed down of late. Most anglers are fishing on the north end of the lake near the cut at Crow’s Neck and in the canal above Crow’s Neck. Anglers are running lines and jug fishing with cut bait or whole shad.
