Fishing ReportOkatibbee Reservoir - 8/8/2022 4:22:06 PM
|Largemouth Bass||Fish for bass in water depths between 4 - 8 feet deep. The best lures to use are soft plastic worms around emergent vegetation. If you are fishing early in the morning bass may be foraging on shad near the surface. Try targeting these fish with topwater lures like poppers or buzzbaits.|
|Crappie||Try fishing for crappie near the creek channel or deep drop offs. Live minnows usually work well in these areas. If you're using artificial lures try using small jigs tipped with nibble.|
|Bream||Bream should be holding in 3 - 6 feet of water around brush piles or other types of natural structure. Tightlining on the bottom with crickets or worms will be the best method for catching bream.|
|Catfish||Search for deep water when fishing for catfish. A few good choices for bait to use when targeting catfish are chicken liver or large night crawlers.|
Below: Here are some good largemouth bass recently caught at Okatibbee.
