    Today I fished with one of my longest crappie clients, Jerry the “Hagman!” We had a fantastic day fishing from 6:30am-1:30pm. During that time we caught 50 crappie, including 40 keepers!

    We launched at Four Corners and fished most of the day around the first big island 1 mile straight our from FC. We tight lined(2 reels off the bottom) in 13ft-18ft in brusphiles with Crappie Magnets, red 1/8oz Double Cross Jig with white/chart body and live minnows. The magic depth was 15ft-17ft for us around the island.

    We also fished a few trees on the flat across from Hong Kong, catching around 12 there in the same depths.

    Fun day on the water!

    Brian – If you’re looking at Google Maps, I’m seeing a HUGE island name Ponderosa and a small one, Mousetail. Do you know the name of the island you were fishing around?

    During the summer months I always tight line sitting still right off the bottom.

    Brian, I am sort of new to the area and try to learn about Priest. I searched google map but can’t find Hong Kong Island(except in China)!
    Does it go by another name on the google map?
    Thanks

    It is the island right next to the pooles knob campground closest to the no wake zone. You should see it on your map.

    jpoban – try going to this site for maps of lakes http://webapp.navionics.com/?lang=en

    This will show you the names of the islands and the lake depth.
