MISSISSIPPI: Crappie – Catching in Deeper Water, Around Brushtops on Minnows & Jigs

Water temps are running in the low 70’s.

The bream report is good with a lot of bream bedding right now in 3-8ft of water. Most anglers are tight-lining crickets and redworms, and a few are being caught on jigs. The bass reports have been fair to good. Most anglers are hitting shallow grassy areas, as well as points and the creek channel. Texas-rigged plastics, crankbaits, and spinnerbaits have all been catching fish.

Look to catch a few bass holding around bream beds as well. We’re hearing more reports of bass anglers harvesting some fish, which should be a tremendous help to the population if it continues.

The crappie bite is fair with a few anglers catching them in deeper water around brushtops on both minnows and jigs.
