MISSISSIPPI: Aberdeen Lake – Crappie Anglers Targeting Deeper Banks with Minnows & Jigs

The bass reports continue to be fair to slow.

Numbers of bass in the 10 to 13 inch range have been showing up along the navigation channel around the mouths of ditches and old river runs. The best chance for a quality bite has been in the deeper sloughs around grass. Buzzbaits and frogs have been the best bait choices early and late in the day as well as during overcast conditions. During the day, Texas rigged plastics and jigs have been the go-to baits. Best baits on the channel have been spinnerbaits and t-rigged plastics. A few anglers are hitting the rip rap above the old river with crankbaits and spinnerbaits.

The few anglers targeting catfish are using jugs and trotlines on the navigation channel and close to the mouth of the old Tombigbee River.

The few crappie reports continue to be slow. Crappie anglers are fishing the old river runs and targeting the deeper banks with minnows and jigs as one or the other may produce more bites any given day.
