Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Okatibbee Reservoir: Crappie can be caught in the deeper parts of the lake on creek ledges in and around structure using jigs or minnows.

Bass will be found around the grass using top water lures and rattle traps. Bass should be chasing bait fish that are holding in the grass which makes them very aggressive this time of year. Fishing should be best in the early morning and late afternoon. It is not uncommon to catch fish in the 3-5lb range at Okatibbee this time of year.

Catfish can be caught along the rocks using liver or other popular catfish baits. With the warming temps these places will begin to produce fish as catfish move in to spawn. This is a great time to introduce a kid to fishing. The rocks on the lower end of the lake always seem to produce good numbers of fish.

A good number of bream and red ear bream were recently off of beds. Try fishing in shallow water around the "minnow ponds" using crickets and worms.
