MISSISSIPPI: Fishing the Lower River & Marsh Catching Bass Using Soft Plastics

Monday, October 17th, 2011

Bass fishermen still fish the river & oxbows catching bass around woody cover in the main channel as well as the oxbows using soft plastics and spinnerbaits. Anglers fishing the lower river & marsh continue to report catching a few bass using soft plastics, especially on a falling tide.

Several reports came in of anglers catching flathead catfish in the 20 to 40-lb. range in the mid-river areas near Smith’s Fish Camp using live bait.

The bream are still being caught using crickets in the oxbows & main channel near woody cover. Some anglers continue to report decent catches of redear (shellcracker) in the lower river oxbows and main channel south of the forks as well as in the marsh using redworms in 4 to 8 ft. of water. Some of the better catches reportedly coming from the edges of the main river channel & along the edges of the larger bayous in the marsh near I-10 using redworms.

A few new crappie reports came in from the oxbows where some anglers are trolling mid-lake using small crankbaits or jigs to catch fish in the 1 to 1.5-lb. range.

FLORIDA: Wild Shiners Have Been Catching a Lot of Bass Out Here

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

We have been doing pretty good out on Lake Jackson.

Wild shiners have been catching a lot of bass out here and some good sized bass as well. Steve came out with us today for a couple hours of some of Florida’s best bass fishing and did it all with artificial lures. Numbers were down some but believe me the smiles Steve had when he caught his new personal best just over six pounds on a senko type bait made for a great day. This toad did a lot of jumping and put on a great show for Steve today. Early morning bite remains the best action as things will slow down some close to high noon.

This does not mean fishing is off, just means we slow down the presentation and target certain areas a little harder to keep catching the bass!
