The last 3 days I have been bass and crappie fishing. Today I crappie fished in the back of Fall Creek on the pontoon boat with a family of 4. The crappie were scattered because the water is a lot higher, but there are tons of crappie still in there. We caught 15 keepers and most of them were males. That tells us a lot about the spawn up lake. Mid-lake and down-lake they’re still a lot of eggs in most of the crappie. While we were in Fall Creek we focused in the back around the stumps that were out of the water a few weeks ago and are now under the water. All of our crappie came off of floats with minnows fished in 2 to 6 feet of water. Fishing for crappie around Fate Sanders has been productive around stake beds and brush piles in 7 to 14 feet of water. Water temperature is in the upper 60’s near 70 degrees now with one foot visibility. Crappie magnets in purple/pink and shad color have been productive. Minnows fished off the bottom have been hard to beat as well. The pools knob area, Hong Kong, Long Hunter, have been great areas.
For the bass dragging 3/16 ounce shaky heads with green pumpkin Zoom trick worms have been most productive for us. Both east and west sides of the Bird and Mousrtail have produced small to quality largemouth in four to eight feet of water. Further down lake in Hamilton Creek the bass have been biting. The left cove pass Anderson Campground boat ramp has been where we are focusing. The water clarity is better than 2 feet at mid 60’s water temperature. Shaky heads and chatterbaits in bluegill pattern have been the most productive. Tomorrow I’ll be out in the morning to bass fish I’m going to start around fate Sanders an end-around Hobson Pike. It will only be a four-hour trip, but hopefully we can figure something out in that time.
