Bee Lake: Weekly fishing reports will resume in mid February of 2016. Use these tips while fishing over the winter months.
For crappie, try trolling along the outside edges of the cypress trees or try jigging in brush piles or around structure in 3 - 6 feet of water. Minnows or jigs are the normal choices for bait at Bee.
For bass, try fishing soft plastics around the cypress trees or around the docks and piers in the northern arm of the lake in water 2 - 4 feet deep. You may also try spinnerbaits, jigs, or crankbaits near downed logs or brush piles near the shoreline. During the cold winter using suspended crankbaits is a good bait. Just remember to fish slower when the water is cold.
For bream, try using crickets or red worms and fishing around the cypress knees.
For catfish, try fishing near culverts or pipes with flowing water into the lake, as catfish like to stack up around these areas. Worms, chicken livers, or stink bait are all good choices for bait.
