Bee Lake: As a result of the extremely hot weather, fishing pressure on Bee Lake continues to be fairly low. However, with the recent scattered showers in the area, temperatures have been falling a bit and more anglers have been going out with hopes of catching a cooler full of fish.
Those anglers hoping to catch crappie, try trolling in the deeper areas of the lake with minnows or jigs. Best time of day should be early in the morning before it gets too hot.
For bream, try using crickets or red worms and fishing around the cypress knees.
For bass, try fishing soft plastics around the cypress trees or around the docks and piers in the northern arm of the lake. You may also try spinnerbaits, jigs, or crankbaits near downed logs or brush piles near the shoreline. Top water lures could also work well early in the morning and late in the afternoon.
For catfish, try tightlining in water less than four feet deep near the shoreline, or try setting some trotlines baited with cut bait or stink bait.
