Fishing at Big Creek Lake, Alabama
Bass and crappie fishing have been reported to be the best in recent years especially during the spring, following a drought in 2007. During the spring, bass are easily caught from the shallow grass beds on soft plastics, spinner baits, and top water baits and crappie are caught off the woody debris with live minnows or jigs. This lake has become more popular to bass anglers as tournament activity has increased in recent years.
