  • 4/6/2014 crappie report

    Posted by brian-graves on April 7, 2014 at 12:36 am

    Great day today! First report and second day on the site. I spent all night reading reports and researching where/how to fish and it sure did pay off.

    I have spent the spring and fished about 6 days and i barely caught enough for one dinner for my wife, son and I.

    Well this site paid off. This morning a friend of mine and I hit the water at 6:30 launching at fall creek. We motored down to the mouth and setup at the fish attractors heading toward the green channel buoy.

    We setup spider rigging 3 poles each with minnows and within minutes the first slab was in the boat. We fished from 7-12:30 and never fired up the big motor. We boated a ton and lost count on the shorts. We took home 23 keepers and most of those were 11″ – 15″.

    We stayed in 15′-20′ water on the edge of the drops and fished 4-8 feet deep with double minnow rigs. Ran outta minnows and called it a day. Great day for me. My personal best in a long time.

    Ty for this site. I’m glad I found it.

    I can post pics if anyone wants to see. But most everyone has seen crappie.

    Brian,

    Was that you that I ran into at the mouth of Spring and Fall creek? I was in an older blue Ranger fishing a treetop in 20′ of water between the mouths of the creeks.

    Great report! Glad you caught a bunch! Krogers, I don’t think so, I didn’t fish today.

    I was the guy in the tan Lowe stinger. Did you have the young child with you and the guy in camo in the back? If so i remember you as we passed by.

    I remembered the guy in the camo, he came by and chatting with us yesterday at the Mona romp. Nice fellow.

    How did you guys end up?

    That was us. The young one got restless and wanted to go fast. We had a mixed bag of fish and 4 keeper crappie. We didn’t keep ant of them.

    Yea. I have a 3 yo. I know about restless. He will be my sidekick in a couple more years.

    I caught most of mine by that red buoy I was next to when you guys headed up the lake. All of our fish were suspended and not near wood.

    Good to see you. I will be back out there this week one day.
