The 2016 Bay Springs Lake Habitat Day will be Feb 13th, at the boat ramp inside Piney Grove Campground. We will start at 9:00 AM. We will be constructing and placing brush piles in the lake and doing a shoreline clean-up. We will provide the trees, blocks and lunch for all participants.
In the past, we have allowed people to bring trailers and take the trees to another ramp. Several people have asked about doing that this year. Some have even asked about taking the trees to a different lake. To make it fair for everyone and to insure that the trees are going into Bay Springs, DO NOT bring a trailer to get your trees. If you would like to get a trailer load of trees, you can contact the Tupelo city dump. They will let you get as many as you want.

Let me know if you plan to attend, so that we know how much food to buy. Please bring work gloves, boots and a life jacket. All volunteers are required to wear a life jacket while they are in a boat.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
