    I got to spring creek in the back spring at 6:15. I found a small school of them and got 4 keepers and 3 non keepers out of the school before they moved on. The rest of them I had to work hard to get because they were scattered and were hugging the bottom. I ended up with 10 keepers and 10 non keepers caught on crappie magnets. The bites were very light and many times I didn’t even know they had it in their mouth until almost to the bank. I had 4 that would not even fit into the measuring cup. They were full of eggs. I caught them all on “sho nuff” crappie magnets with 1/16 ounce double cross jig heads tipped with a crappie nibble. Can’t wait to get back there Thursday. They stopped biting at 9:30 and I left at 10:30.

    Great report! I got there around 8:45….didn’t see you back there. We trolled and caught several whites, but by the time we started casting our jigs, it was too windy to sit still and too much ice on our rods.

    Do you ever wade the stones below Walter Hill or in m’boro? I started fishing while I went to MTSU.
    We used to catch some nice crappie, largemouth, hybrids, whites and occasional smallies up there from shore. Let me know if that’s something you are interested in, and I can give you some tips.

    Brian, did you go to the creek looking thing right after the finger coves? Simplecircuit, I have never waded the stones. If you can tell me more about it that would be great.

    No. The furthest I went back was the finger coves.
