Today was a good day on the lake chasing the crappie.
I started the day around Pooles Knob boat ramp fishing brushpiles in 8ft-14ft. We quickly boated a few short crappie and quality keepers before the storm set in. We were tight lining minnows and Crappie Magnets(Sno Snuff) with 1/16oz white crappie magnets jig heads.
When we came back out an hour later we caught a few short and keeper crappie in 5ft off the bank in the little cove across from Fate Sanders.
Next we moved behind the first cut through on brushpiles in 12ft-14ft….there we got several more keepers.
We moved to Jones Mill Cove and caught 2 more keepers on stumps in the back in 6ft. Here we put a float on and cast away from the boat.
Our forth stop was at Mouse Tail Island. Fishing brushpiles on the north bank off the sandy point in 12ft-16ft we caught 6 more keepers and many short crappie.
Fifth spot the La Vergne pump house cut through. There we fished in 20ft on BP and caught 2 keepers.
Out last spot was back at Jones Mill Cove. I switched to a black/chart magnet while we fished the giant brushpiles I put out 8 years ago off the Jones Mill boat ramp in 14ft. We caught 16 crappie in 10 minutes without 1 keeper! lol
All and all we had a fun, active day. We caught around 20 keepers and enjoyed the tight line bite for the first time in a while.
