    Today I had two trips, both for crappie. On the first I dressed 17 keepers! Most of them came from the flat across from Hong Kong Island. There are a lot of brushpiles in 12ft-16ft scattered throughout the flat that were holding fish. Another area that was productive was the flat across from Bryants Grove in the same depths. Most of the channel buoys have brush within 20 yards around them. We stayed in 14ft-17ft. In the same depths again, we caught a bunch around the island just north of Ponderosa Island. We focused on the side facing Hobson Pike bridge.

    In each brushpile we tight lined minnows off the bottom….usually between 2-4 cranks off the bottom depending on the size of the tree.

    On my second trip I was with my 85 year old client and good friend, Mr. Small. Fishing from his pontoon boat we fished the same areas with great success. I think we packed in around 15 crappie with tons of yellow bass!

    In the next 2 weeks I will be out on Normandy Lake getting ready for the AWESOME fall bite! During the fall you see a lot of 2lb crappie there and this is the first year we are going to be offering guide trips there! If you would like get into the big slabs schedule your trip soon. Also, do not forget that all members received a $25 OFF coupon they can use at any time.

    Which flat across from Hong Kong Island are you referring to? Which direction?

    The flat directly across the bluff wall of Hong Kong Island. There is a cypress tree up near the island.

    The island east. Looks like they call it Mouse Tail island on this map…
