Lake Okatibbee Sponsored by
Date 17-Oct-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Okatibbee Reservoir: Largemouth and spotted bass can be caught in deeper ledges off of creek channels with soft plastics. Target fish on points and with crankbaits and rattletraps early in the morning and late in the evening. The deeper tops can hold fish as well and should be targeted with soft plastics. The riprap along the dam can produce good fish in the early morning and late afternoon. Cooler weather will help with the bass catch.

Crappie can be caught trolling 10-12 feet of water with minnows or jigs. Crappie fishing has been reported to have picked this past week.

Catfish can be caught tight-lining chicken livers or nightcrawlers on the bottom. The catfish bite is good this time of year.

Bream can be caught using crickets or redworms around deep brush tops throughout the day. They can be caught in medium depths around vegetation and brushpiles early in the morning and late in the afternoon. The riprap along the damn always holds bream as well.
