Crappie this year has stunk for me. I fished the four corners area and pooles knob area on Friday trolling jigs and minnows. Caught 5 shorts, 1 keeper, and this beautiful 19″ smallmouth that wrecked my lines but my kids loved.
I got out again this morning in midst of the rain and wind from 10 am -1 pm. I wanted to catch some bass. Fished mousetail island and some points around four corners. I caught 13 bass total with 5 keepers. 1 4+lber and 2 3+lbers. The funny thing was that I had to be in the wind and waves to catch them. Everytime I tried to escape into a protected cove, the water temp rose a degree or two and no bites at all. Move back around the point and battle the wind and the rain and I would catch fish again!! Rough day but well worth it. The largest 4+ lber went 20″ even and was caught on the 3rd cast of the day.
