Fishing in area lakes slows down

Below are the most current reports on the fishing conditions  in the local area. Information courtesy of the Mississippi Department of Fisheries.

Lake Mary Crawford

Bass fishing is fair. Black or junebug colored worms are the best lures right now. Target shallow and medium depths.

Bream fishing is good. One angler caught 19 on Sunday on crickets, while another did well with a fly rod. Try redworms fished on the bottom for Redear Sunfish.

Crappie fishing is slow. Try minnows and jigs in eight to 10 feet of water.

Catfishing is fair. Try cutbait, worms or commercial catfish bait on the bottom.

Lake Lincoln State Park

Bass fishing is fair on top water lures and soft plastics in shallow and medium depths.

Bream fishing is fair, but best around a full moon. Crickets and worms are the best baits.

Crappie fishing is fair. Try trolling or spider rigging in eight inches of water. Minnows and jigs are both working well.

Catfish are being caught in fair numbers. Fishing around the island should produce some fish. Worms or cutbait fished on the bottom are the best baits of choice.

Percy Quin State Park

Bass fishing is fair to good on topwater lures, soft plastics and spinnerbaits in shallow water in grass, and also around the willow trees.

Bream fishing is fair, but picks up considerably a couple of days before and after a full moon. Try fishing in about four feet of water around the banks. Redworms and crickets are working the best.

Crappie fishing is slow. Fisherman trolling in five to nine feet of water are having some success with minnows and jigs.

The catfish bite is good currently. Fish on the bottom with your favorite catfish bait.
