Today I fished from 8am-2pm and what a day it was!
Fishing with one of my longest clients Jerry the “Hagman” Haglege, we caught 60 crappie including 31 keepers!
Almost the entire trip was spent in the main channel around Spring Creek and into the mouth of Spring Creek a little. We trolled with 6 rods spooled with 6lb test. Crappie Magnets was all we used on 1/32oz Crappie Magnet Double Cross Jigs. Our best colors were orange/chart, black/chart, white, and purple/chart.
We kept the boat in 10-16ft along the channel ledge, trolling at .7-1mph. Very easy technique with a lot of results. We talked to two guys that passed us and they said they hadn’t caught their first crappie yet. I told them what we were doing and that we had caught 15-18. However, I could tell they were frustrated so I didn’t proceed to tell them we actually had caught 43 at that time and had 15-18 keepers! Gotta love trolling(for a few hours….I can’t help but pick up my casting rod to feel that “tick” and set the hook too)!
