Lake Jennings Fishing Report

Lake Jennings Fishing Report

by Lake Jennings Staff


Anglers were landing catfish in Hermit Cove this weekend. Mackerel and night crawlers were the bait of choice. The catfish will come looking for food at night. Tie a #2 or #4 hook on to your test line, add a 2 inch piece of mackerel and cast into shallow waters. You’re sure to get a bite! Our next stocking is this week with 1,000 lbs. of catfish!


Anglers vying for bass found Sentry Point to be productive and landed bass by casting out past the structure.


Bluegill and redear are biting in Half Moon Cove and Hermit Cove on night crawlers. Use 2-6 lb. test line for fishing panfish.
