For bass, fish around structure and points. Try slow moving baits such as rolling a spinnerbait or a pig and jig in deep water. Also try along vegetation flipping a lizard or critter bait with a split shot weight tied approx. 14 - 16 inches above the lure on warmer days. Small watermelon seed grubs seem to be working. The bass bite and the size of bass caught have increased this week.

For bream, try redworms along the creek channels and around fish attractor buoys. A few nice sized redear have been reported caught. Bluegill are picking up on crickets. one angler picked up 26 with over half being 1 lb. redear.

For catfish, try tightlining with liver or stinkbait.

For crappie, try minnows or jigs around the fish attractor buoys. Some have been picked up while bass fishing on artificial baits.

About: - Lake Claude Bennett is a 71 acre state-owned fishing lake located in Jasper County. Repairs to the dam have been completed and the lake has refilled allowing use of the boat ramp. This lake is well known for its excellent bass, bream, and crappie fishing. Generally, we notice that a lake is known for one or the other, but here it seems that each has equal fishing value to anglers. Crappie anglers enjoyed a very high catch rate of 3.4 fish per hour during 2004. That is excellent fishing since the average catch rate for agency-owned lakes is only 1 crappie per hour! The catch rate for bream (1.8/hour) was also higher than the average for agency-owned lakes which is 1.5 bream/hour.

Several fish attractors have been established in the lake to create fish habitat and a hot spot for anglers. These attractors have been marked with buoys for anglers to easily find and are loaded down with Christmas trees. Other habitat sources established here are several bream gravel spawning beds located near the shoreline and fishing piers. These areas are great for locating bream during the late spring and early summer months.
