Bee Lake: Cooler temperatures are bringing more and more anglers out to the lake lately. There have been reports that crappie fishing has started to pick up. Most anglers are having success trolling the lake, finding deeper pockets. Bream and bass fishermen are also having success. Bream fishermen are catching fish around cpypress trees and fallen logs. Bass fishermen are catching nice sized fish around brush piles and fallen logs.
Fishing at Bee Lake remains to be pretty decent. Crappie fishing is still pretty slow. Bass anglers are having some luck catching a few 3 and 4 lb fish here and there. There were reports that bream fishing has picked up. Even a couple catfish anglers were having some luck at Bee. No matter your target species of fish, get to Bee Lake and try your luck. Who knows, you may even leave with the limit.
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.
