Yesterday I crappie fished with the Hagman! We ended up with near 15 keepers fishing up in the river. We only fished three spots, but most were productive.
We fished a little around the first flat on the left passed Fall Creek while sitting in the channel in 15ft casting chart/yellow 1/8oz jigs and tight lining minnows. Water temperature was 58 degrees amd clearer than it has been with foot 1.5ft visibility. It wasn’t until we fished around the green channel buoy to the left to the PVC pole. There where we caught the majority of our fish in 18 ft in front of the pole. We did catch several on the flat before we fish there as well.
Next we went under Jefferson Pike Bridge around the big flat to the left and stopped at the bluff wall on the left hundred yards up. We fished the trees that were hanging off the rocks into deeper water. Tight lining minnows in 10 to 15 feet of water we caught several slab crappie. The key is to find the trees that go down at least 10 to 15ft.
Next we cruised up to the flat on the left just up from the bluff wall. Again, we sat the boat in 15 feet of water and fished the channel drop. Tight lining our minnows around brushpiles, stumps, trees we caught several more slabs. We had to try to stay out of the wind all day, but these spots were protected for the most part. I’ll be out again tomorrow to fish some of the same areas for 4 hours. Hopefully with the water being lower and even clearer we catch 20 keepers!
