Okatibbee Reservoir: Crappie fishing has been good recently. Reports of good size fish being caught using jigs tipped with a nibble. Fish will primarily be in deeper water along creek channels and ledges. Trolling in these areas with jigs or minnows can be productive during the summer months. Night fishing over deep structure with minnows can be very productive during the fall as fish will begin to feed heavily in preparation for winter.
Bass should be targeted around grass patches and lily pads early in the morning and at dusk. Top water lures, Carolina rigs and brush hogs are popular baits to use. Fish may also be in deeper water along creek ledges where structure is present.
Catfish can be targeted with trot lines or jugs out in open water with liver, worms or blood baits. Fishing at night can be very productive as the summer progresses.
Bream have been biting good recently around lily pads in 4 - 6 ft. Crickets and red worms fished under a cork have been the most productive.
