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. Any deep structure could be holding fish.Orange and chartreuse or white and chartreuse jigs tipped with a nibble or a minnow seem to work good at Okatibbee. Reports of some good crappie being caught recently in and around these types of structure. Fall of the year is a good time to try night fishing for crappie with minnows or jigs.

Bass should be holding on deeper points this time of year. Try using plastic baits such as worms or lizards with a Carolina rig. Any type of deep structure may be holding fish especially during the heat of the day. Grass beds may be holding fish in the early parts of the day and late evening. Top water lures should be a good choice.

Catfish fishing has been fair lately. Reports of fish being caught on noodles and trot lines with some people reporting good numbers. Some nice size fish reported but mostly average size blue and channel cats.

Bream can be caught in and around the grass using crickets and worms in 3 - 4 ft of water.
