Conditions : BAY SPRINGS LAKE: Not much change to report this week as the bass bite is still slow and bites are tough to come by. A few bass are being caught the first 3 or so hours after daylight, but the midday bite is almost nonexistent. Light tackle and techniques like drop-shotting and shakeyheads have proven effective for a few keeper spotted and largemouth bass. Target mainlake points in 10 to 25 feet of water. The bass bite in the canal is fair with buzzbaits and t-rigged plastics being the best baits. The bass reports in the evening are a bit better. It took over 16 pounds to win last Tuesday's 3-fish tournament with a 7 pound lunker weighed in. A few quality bass are being caught on Texas/Carolina-rigged plastics, jigs and deep diving crankbaits. Crappie fishing is also tough but a few anglers are having some success with both minnows and jigs fished along deep structure in the McDougal and Ashcraft areas of the lake. The catfish reports are fair with most folks jug fishing with cutbait in the canal between Bay Springs and Pickwick.
