    I’ve got a crappie report coming later today. But in a nut shell I have been very successful in 12ft-18ft in brushpiles with minnows and jigs. Tightlining minnows 2-3ft minnows off the bottom and 1/8oz crappie magents in percy color have been the ticket. Mid lake and up lake near Youth Inc is holding a lot of crappie.

    I went this morning and brought home 18 keepers by 9am. Great day in my book. Caught LOTS of shorts and white bass pushing minnows on a spider rig. Ran through 8dz minnows.

    We fished near pools knob campground and Bryant’s grove. 15-20FOW fishing around 12 feet deep. Thermocline was around 15 FOW it seemed by my electronics. Fish were stacked up on small brush piles. If the wind would have been calmer we could have caught a lot more. Kept catching a fish and ended up way off the way mark. I need one of those fancy trolling motors with an anchor button! :mrgreen:

    Good work, Brian! That sounds like an active day. And I second that trolling motor comment, I got my butt kicked a little bit on Saturday.
