Bream fishing is picking up. Try crickets and worms in 3 to 6 feet of water

No current reports on crappie fishing. Small minnows and jigs fished around the willows should produce some fish.

No current reports on catfish, but Lake Tangipahoa has some big blue cats. Try chicken livers or night crawlers on the bottom.

Calling Panther Lake

Bass fishing has been good on topwater lures fished early in the morning or late evening. Crankbaits are working well on schooling bass.

Bream fishing has finally picked up and earthworms tightlined on the bottom are working very well. Some big Redear Sunfish are being caught.

Crappie fishing has slowed lately, and only a few are being caught on minnows.

Catfish biting is fair right now, but Calling Panther has a very healthy catfish population. Try night crawlers or chicken livers on the bottom.
