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. Trolling out in open water along creek ledges is a good method for catching fish this time of year. Crappie fishing tends to be really good in the fall as fish begin to feed heavily in preparation for the winter months. Recently, crappie have been biting really well. Fish are being caught in 8 - 12 ft of water along flats that are near creek channels. Popular colors are chartreuse/white or Pink/white tipped with a minnow or a nibble. All the fresh water may slow the bite some but should pick back up as water settles.
Bass can be targeted in and around shallow structure such as stump fields. Top water baits such as frogs, buzz baits or floating plugs should be good choices for lures. Plastic worms or flukes should produce fish as well in these areas. Recent electro fishing produced some really nice fish around brush piles and stumps. The lily pads off the point between Gin Creek landing and the Collinsville stumps produced some nice fish as well.
Catfishing has been fair lately. Try fishing with trot lines and jugs or tight lining off the bottom with rod and reel. Okatibbee has a good population of catfish with most being of average size but bigger fish are caught as well.
Bream can be caught in 8 - 10 ft of water on crickets and worms. Bream tend to move deeper and around structure during the winter months.
