Okatibbee Reservoir: Crappie fishing has been good this week. Fish are being caught in and around grass beds in 3 - 5 ft of water. Fish also being caught in deeper water 8 - 10 ft around feeder creeks and along the flats off of the main creek channels.
Bass can be targeted with top water lures fished along submerged brush and grass beds should produce good numbers early in the morning and late afternoon. Warmer temperatures should have fish in the spawning mode along the shallow areas of the lake. Reports of good numbers of fish being caught recently on buzz baits over submerged grass beds.
Catfish can be caught on trotlines in deeper water or tight lining with rod and reels. Typical baits such as minnows, liver or worms should be effective. As the water continues to warm fish will begin to move into shallower areas such as stump fields and flooded brush. Reports of a few fish being caught along the rocks using the tightlining method.
Bream were caught in shallow areas this week around flooded trees and brush. Fish may be scattered but a cricket dropped around these areas can produce some nice fish.
