MISSISSIPPI: Aberdeen Lake – Target Shallow Grass with Spinnerbaits & Buzzbaits

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

As the days are getting shorter, fish are starting to make that fall transition, but with the extended heat and humidity the fishing action has been slow.

The old river is probably high and muddy due to heavy rains so alternative areas to fish are recommended.

The crappie reports are still a bit slow but some are catching a few. Target stumps and brush in 4 to 8 ft of water with minnows for best results.

The bass bite has been fair with a few bass anglers reporting some fish being caught in the bigger sloughs by targeting shallow grass with spinnerbaits and buzzbaits.

The catfish reports have been fair but a few catfish are being caught on trotlines fished off the main channel. Whole shad and cutbait has been the best baits.

TENNESSEE: Old Hickory Lake – Bass Caught on Spinnerbaits, Crankbaits & Soft Plastics

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Bass being caught in the creeks on spinnerbaits, crankbaits and soft plastics up river.

Look for water temperatures in the 60s. Key structure to fish would be rock and grass.

Few fish being caught down river.

MISSISSIPPI: Columbus Lake – Throw Shallow Running Crankbaits, Spinnerbaits & Swimbaits

Friday, November 11th, 2011

The crappie bite is fair to good and should continue thru this month.

Hit the old river runs right now for best results. The runs that are closed off on the upstream end will be the ones to target. Crappie are holding on stumps and laydowns in 4 to 8 ft of water that have deeper water nearby. Crappie jigs have been outproducing minnows, but that can change daily.

The bass reports are still fair with most of the action happening in the same areas as the crappie. The river runs are producing a few quality fish, and the gravel pits are holding good numbers of keeper-size bass. The bass seem to be holding just off shoreline structure and relating bait vs. wood or grass. Throw shallow running crankbaits, spinnerbaits and swimbaits where shad are active.

Catfish reports are the same as for Aberdeen with most folks hitting the channel and the mouths of the old river runs with jugs and rod-n-reels with some success.

MISSISSIPPI: Chotard & Albermarle – Try Soft Plastics & Spinnerbaits Around Edges of Trees

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Fishing on Chotard and Albermarle is always dependent upon the MS River level and movement.  As the water slowly leaks out of the oxbows and back into the River, fishing is great!  For best results on these lakes, always check the MS River report to know if the river is moving in or out of the lake and target areas of moving water for improved fishing. Today, the river is at 12ft and slowly rising.

Bass fishing has been great during the past few weeks.  The cold front could slow down the bite, but it should pick back up later in the week.  The trees along the bank across from Laney’s should be holding fish.  Try soft plastics and spinnerbaits around the edges of the trees.  The points along Chotard are producing good-sized fish.  Try texas-rigging a plastic worm when fishing the points.

Crappie fishing has also been great lately.  However, crappie are often very finicky about pressure changes, so they may slow down for a few days as well.  These lakes are known to have big crappie and a lot of them.  Try using minnows or jigs around the willow trees.  If you cannot find them there, try some of the deeper treetops along the lake.  Also, slow-trolling open waters along the bank can be a very effective method on these lakes.

Bream fishing is great right now as well.  Try using crickets or redworms around treetops in deep water.  There have been reports of fishermen filling their coolers with nice size fish.

Catfishing is always good on the lakes.  As an oxbow of the MS River, catfish will always be a good option.  Try tightlining in deep water with chicken liver, cutbait, or nightcrawlers.

MISSISSIPPI: Bass Fishermen Catching around Woody Cover using Soft Plastics & Spinnerbaits

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Pascagoula River:

The river @ Merrill is at 2.31 ft. & rising while the lower river @ Graham Ferry is at 1.31 ft. & falling.

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.

Please note: A minimum length limit is in effect for black bass (this includes largemouth bass & spotted bass) in the Pascagoula River from Merrill to the Highway 90 bridge (this includes all connected oxbow lakes, East [Little] River, West River and all water areas between East River and West River). Only bass over 12 inches may be in possession on these waters with a creel limit of 10 black bass per day.
