    I had a buddy come down from Illinois for the weekend and we set out to catch as many crappie as we could for him to take home. We started out in Sat in Stewarts Creek and caught few keepers right off the bat. Fish were biting right out in front of the ramp in 5-8 foot of water. Things slowed down pretty quickly so we made the run to the mouth of spring creek. Trolling there for several hours we picked up 17 keepers. Went into Fate Sanders for lunch and got to see the bags of bass from the tourney. Wow…those guys are good. So many large bass in those bags and according to Brian’s report from Friday the big girls are biting. We headed out to Sister cove and made one pass with a few small fish. Decided to head back to Stewarts Creek and fish the mouth of ski cove. Did really well in the mouth and picked up another 20 keepers there. Sunday morning we started right back in the same spot with lots of small crappie and just 4 keepers in the morning. Headed back to the spot right across the ramp from SC launch and caught 11 more keepers. Ended the day at 1 pm so my buddy could get back to Illinois. Sent him home with 100 fillets so he was happy. Lots of black crappie this weekend, they are all short and fat as can be and seem to be spawned out. Never found a egg in any of them. The white crappie were much longer fish and we had a few pushing 2 lbs. They all were full of eggs but nothing too bloody yet. May be a while before the drop eggs. I have to say that I have never seen PP so busy as it was on Sat….boats everywhere. I may have to bass fish tomorrow afternoon with all the great reports….I love the top water bite. Good luck all!
