Bay Springs Summertime Crappie
Fishing opportunities in Alabama are many and varied. From the Tennessee River to the Gulf of Mexico, state anglers can fish the Yellowhammer state a lifetime and still not exhaust all of the possibilities.

Those ideas fail to negate the excitement generated by exploring new waters. One gem of a lake just outside Alabama borders provides just such an escape from the routine, a short road trip to a fishery that produces plentiful numbers of crappie year-round and abundant spotted bass that grow to football-shaped proportions.

The venue is Bay Springs Lake on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, not far from the Alabama line in northeast Mississippi. Not to be confused with the Bay Springs section of Weiss Lake on the Coosa River in northeast Alabama, this version of Bay Springs is a 6,700-acre impoundment a short distance from Belmont, Miss.
