Right now bass can be caught on shallow crankbaits and jerk baits in the pre-spawn as the bass are headed shallow to stock up for the spawn. Catfish can be caught on live and cut shad fished near shallow and deep cover. Crappie can be caught on minnows near brush piles and fallen trees in the shallows.

Fishing the tough Lake Tuscaloosa

To catch bass on this lake it will take time to learn their patterns. Even the pros call this lake tough. Gizzard shad are a the top baitfish here. Spotted bass tend to follow the baitfish and the largemouth tend to stay shallow and wait for them to come. Early morning is the best time to fish here. Floating worms and spooks a top choices for fisherman who frequent Lake Tuscaloosa. It was stocked with striped bass and hybrid bass in the 1970's. 20-30 pound striped bass have been caught in the last few years. Walleye were stocked in the 1980's but most were eaten by larger bass. The state stopped stocking it because of the lack of water quality. It is still a good fishery for a nice day of fishing for you and your family. Good luck!
