Lake Jennings Fishing Report

Anglers found fishing for catfish easy on Friday night. More catfish were caught by boat than from the shoreline. The productive locations were Siesta Cove and Half Moon Cove. Mackerel continues to be the best bait.


Bluegill are being reeled in from Cloister Cove with half a night crawler or meal worm. Find a shady spot to drop your line!
