Conditions : Grenada Lake: ????? Collins’ Bait Shop (662)226-3581 and MDWFP angler creel surveys this past week showed crappie fishing has been best in the main lake point from Skuna ramp to Carver Point. Some limits of big fish have been reported lately, but you have to use big baits; fish crankbaits 16 – 20 ft deep. A lot of short fish are being reported; use bigger baits and fish deeper to discourage smaller fish. Pinch down the barbs on crankbait hooks to make releasing short fish faster and less damaging; it does no good to release dead fish. Quite a few blue catfish and white bass have been hitting crankbaits meant for crappie. Catfishing on lines or rod-and-reel has been picking up as fish are feeding after they’re done spawning. White bass are in the main lake feeding on shad; fish jigs, tailspinner lures, or small crankbaits over sandy points. Where the two rivers join is usually the best spot for “stripes”, but there was a recent report of big (3 pound range!) fish caught from creeks and sloughs running into the river channel above Young’s Landing. Fish were not surface feeding, so fish those types of areas with flat-sided rattling crankbaits or weighted tailspinner lures the last 2 – 3 hours before dark. There is no size or number limit on white bass. For largemouth bass, fish spinnerbaits or topwaters in shallower water over flooded cover early and late in the day and crankbaits or soft plastics in deeper water on channel edges or main lake points midday; look for clearer water.

As the water falls, folks report balls of “fish eggs” or “jellyfish” clinging to sticks, trees, and about everything else. These are actually colonial animals (like coral) that filter plankton out of the water. Nibbling by fish results in a rounded colony. Web search “freshwater bryozoans” for more on these interesting, ancient animals.

The spillway had one gate open 8.0 ft (2600 cfs) Tuesday. Best luck has been for blue catfish (white humpbacks) with nightcrawlers, shad, or minnows under a slip cork or using rods or lines with live bait for catfish on down the river below the spillway.
