1. Lifetime Catches
Grenada Lake was formed by damming the Yalobusha River for seasonal flood control. It just so happens the dynamic terrain, undisturbed cypress habitat, and rich soil of the region creates a fish food frenzy. Seasonal level changes, particularly a lower winter water level, means food sources are concentrated and fish grow larger than they otherwise would. No matter who is making the list, this is one of the best crappie fishing experiences in the country: crappie over a
foot long and commonly weighing near 3lbs! Crappie get most of the attention, but white bass, catfish, and bream are also plentiful.
While many northern lakes have size limits of just 8 inches on their crappie, Grenada Lake keepers must be longer than 12 inches. But don’t think that means you’ll fish all day and leave with an empty boat—the boat limit of 40 fish for three or more persons is regularly reached thanks to the help of experienced guides.
