Fishing Report

Tombigbee State Park - 3/22/2023 3:24:04 PM
Species Detail
Largemouth Bass Bass fishing has slowed a little, but fish are still being caught up in the shallows on spinnerbaits and jerkbaits. If the shoreline fishing is too slow, back off and fish the points with Texas-rigs and shakeyheads.
Crappie Many crappie seem to have moved out into deeper water with the cold front, but expect that to be short-lived as temps rise again. Jigs and/or minnows will both produce some bites, but one may out produce the other on any given day, depending on conditions.
Bream For bream, tight lining worms in 5 to 10 feet of water has been a productive technique for the few anglers on the water.
Catfish A few catfish are being caught off the piers. Tightlining nightcrawlers or stinkbait has been the most popular approach.
