    With all the warm weather we’ve been having I”m thinking it will push the Crappie spawn up by at least a month. Any feedback would be welcomed.

    You might be right. Saturday me and my brother in law caught over 70 crappie with 30 keepers up shallow on rocky banks. All keepers seemed to be big females full of eggs. Im thinking they are getting ready to do there thing

    I’m a wishful thinker too, but the night temps will be dropping back down into the 20’s in a couple days, the water temp will take a dive, and I’ll be jigging over brush piles at 15 ft.

    I don’t think it will push them back. However, if it’s now, at the end of March, or April, when the water temperature hits the mid-to-upper 50’s we’re going to see crappie spawning. I think we could have less crappie spawn this spring with the warm winter temperatures, but we will have a tremendous spawn this spring when the temperature consistently increase from the 50’s-60’s. When it gets cold later this week it should shut them down and prevent any other fish from spawning until it warms back up.
