Forums Forums Percy Priest Lake Dec 23

    Today I fished from 9am-130pm with Ray, one of our forum members! Fishing for crappie we had an okay day. The temperatures were down and the wind was up out of the north.

    With the recent rain the lake has rose a little over 2ft to 485.75ft. The upper end of the lake it muddy and the water is really moving in the channel. So, we headed the other direction near Long Hunter State Park and starting fishing some standing timber in 50ft of water. I like to fish the standing timber when the water temperature is in the 40’s, but we quickly realized that was not going to work because the current was too strong. We would drop our Crappie Magnets on 1/8oz heads and within second the line would be dragging down lake. So we started fishing brushpiles in that area in 16ft-22ft of water. Over 4.5hrs we caught 16-18, including 9 keepers. The bite was slow at times, but considering the conditions we felt we did okay. We fished pearl, blue/pearl, black/chartreuse and chartreuse/white Magnets. The majority of the time we would let Magnet sink to the bottom, reel it up 2-3 turns and then give it a tiny pop every few seconds.

    +One of the trees we caught keepers on was the BCGS brushpile #5.

    Merry Christmas!
