    I tried fall creek yesterday afternoon. We caught 10 keepers out of my two kayaks. I also caught a catfish and a drum and plenty of tiny rock bass? Little fish that looked like stripes but w a yellow coloration. No big crappie though. Caught on jigs and minnows and some tipped jigs. I’m mostly fishing 1/8 oz jigs. Saw some big small mouth in 1 ft of water. They had no interest in my crappie mags.

    I’m typically run 4 rods trolling style? Am I going about it all wrong? I haven’t had much luck fishing bobbers w double jig or minnows under them…

    Also hard to keep still in the yak. Thoughts? Care to pm me where the big ones are mid lake?

    Hi all,
    I have a member of the forum since Brian started it.
    I can honestly say that Brian has done a great job
    in providing this resource to us fellow fisherman.
    He is more than accommodating to answer questions
    and make suggestions about where the fish are.
    All we have to do is participate in the postings
    and ask what we want more information on.
    He does his best to put us on fish without us actually being in the boat with him,
    and I find this resource to be very helpful.
    It is great to have access to this year round information.
    I have also had the opportunity to meet Brian in person
    and he is genuine and extremely open to sharing his knowledge about fishing our lakes.

    Just wanted to say thanks to Brian for continuing to provide and support this forum community.

    Well said
    I agree 100%
    He has made me the crappie fisherman that I am today
    and I am very successful at crappie fishing.
    Thanks Brain!
    Chris MC.

    I’m glad the crappie are starting to bite for everyone now that I don’t have time to fish for them! That’s always my luck haha. I work in the pool industry so literally the only time I have to go fishing is on Saturday (or perhaps a couple hours in the AM before work–but working 11 hour days I just can’t do that right now, too draining). Percy Priest has frustrated me this spring. I went crappie fishing twice, once in late March and again in early April. The fish were not up shallow were I could catch them.

    I’m headed to Tim’s Ford this Saturday so I can forget crappie fishing and I have family things to attend on Sunday. So much for fresh crappie this year! The bite wont last long and by the time I can get around to it it’ll be too little too late.

    Have fun everyone!

    P.S.- Anyone know anything on Tims? I went there twice in college for college fishing events. The lake has always been good to me (2nd & 3rd place finishes there) but I’ve only ever been in December and January. I’ve heard the smallies are done spawning and the largemouth are on bed now down there. Sounds like a tough time. Any suggestions?
