  1. Geez... Beaver hasn’t changed since leaving it in late July... Lot of water out there... Hopefully it’ll get right at some point... Haven’t crappie fished on Beaver in about 4 or so months... It’s become routine through the past few years to go to other lakes until December... Suckers live shallow on these lakes and just addicted to catching them that way... It’s a grind every time but its worth the work for the quality. Yesterday got started about 12pm and fish till dark. Just going on past experience of where to go and just see what happens... Wasn’t expecting much, just wanted to locate crappie. After getting set up, made one pass and caught four keepers. They were just squeakers on the legal size. Gave em back.. Other than those it was just catching dinks... Flipped the boat around and said let’s go on shallower to find bigger fish... More of a water level I’m usually catching them in this time of year... Usually in the past it’s 6-7 feet but that’s in the bushes right now... Went from fishing in 20-22 feet to about 14-12 and about 6-8 feet down and started slowly getting into them then... Took home seven good ones that’ll make good tacos come Tuesday... Somewhat successful trip... Never fished this lake this high this time of year. Having to adjust and find that right water... Anyway got something to go on for next time and It’ll get better... God bless, God Fishing Second to last pic below is of yesterday catch and then the past few months... Sorry pic overload.. Trying fit 4 months of fishing

    Slab Sunday

    Got hall pass after church Sunday.... WT 65-68 dingy/mud mix and look like a slalom skier running up... Trash scattered... End with 10 before daddy duties called... Too many shorts to count 16 FOW 6-7 feet down rigging straight meat All the fish I’m cleaning most of their eggs look this the past two weeks.... Brown... Think they are transitioning to the main channel now... God Bless and Good fishing Lance
  4. Got started about 10:30ish yesterday and after last weeks gale force winds I’ll take 5-10mph winds any day 🤣 Water temp went from 65-70 by the time I pulled out. Clarity was dingy in the area I first started at. Caught 5 really quick and thought okay gonna get em quick today.... Then took any hour to catch 3 more 😬... Was rigging in 16 fow about 6 feet down along pea gravel banks... About 12:30 I pulled out and made a move. Water clarity was much clearer... Probably the clearest I seen it since getting back on Beaver Lake.... Got in about 12-13 fow and best bite seemed to be 7 feet down. Boy was it a frustrating bite. A lot of bites they would just come up and lift up on the rod tip... Hard to pierce a nose that way... Went through several shorts. About 3 shorts to every keeper. But at least the bite was better... Ended with a limit of females about 2:45. Then culled the 3 squeakers I had and pulled up at 3:30. All the females belly’s didn’t look bloated like previous trips but look more post spawn... Didn’t realize it until I got home and clean the first fish... Most of everyone of them are reabsorbing their eggs... They looked pale like a brownish color... Low water year I guess and not having favorable conditions. These fish will won’t be there in a few days... Gonna be lull time before they start eating aggressively Good fishing and God bless Lance
  5. Yes... That’s all I do... haven’t single pole in over 4 years probably 😬
  6. Generally would of stayed home but full moon and spawning crappie... Just couldn’t set at home... 12 fow, 6ft down... 60 degree WT... Mud
  7. 14 ladies and one player 🤣 Rigging along pea gravel banks for suspended staging females in 16 fow, 6-8 feet down. WT 58 degrees and a pea green water clarity. Steady bite the whole trip. God bless and good fishing... Lance
  8. That’s a big ol male black crappie... That thing probably pushed 1.7 to 2 pounds. Nice! They probably pushed out a little depending on where you’re at because of the drop in temp... Yesterday pattern for me was the same as last Friday... Catching suspended females in 16 fow... They not gonna leave the area yet. They either gonna go up or down in the water column

    They staging

    Big dance is starting... 15 ladies...
  10. Been fishing with a friend from back home in my boat or him and his dad in their’s. They both recently moved into the area. Last Friday my friend and I jumped in my boat. Fished in gale force winds and put 27 in the boat... Bet we didn’t cover a 30 yard rise/hump. That wind just pushed us all over it. Fish were high in the column 4-6 feet down in 13-15 fow. WT temp then was 50-51 in brown water. This weekend had Friday off and the boss is out of town with the girls! Had the whole day. The bite was slow to steady. My friend and his dad in their boat and I running solo. We put a pattern together and all caught our limit. It was steady bite at 8 to 10 feet down over 12 feet of water. Clarity was dingy and WT started at 54 and got to 57 Yesterday got started early before the rain and before the girls got home. Fished deep for a little bit but really wanted to go shallow yesterday. Just to see what was there. Got in about 7-8 fow and about 6 feet down. Picked off 10 before the rain and needing to get home. WT 54 Just enjoy rigging shallow. It’s that slow movement and having to be stealthy. Usually do it year around but with higher water than normal this year I’ve stayed over deeper water. This week ought to get them on the move God bless and good fishing

  12. @Johnsfolly good deal👍🏻
  13. Was it a tough bite Friday... Had a hunch after all those really cold days they wasn’t going to be that active. Earlier in the week I heard WT temps dropped to 38 degrees... By Friday it was 43... Clarity a little stained... Pulling water as well 🙄 Took an old coworker along... As always started the spread with various depths.... We caught some deep close to the bottom but the most consistent bite for us seemed to be middle of the road... 8-9 feet down in 13-15 fow Like I said the bite was slow to nonexistent but we put our heads down stuck to what was working for us the most consistent and put 15 keepers in the box... Ready to start seeing the sunshine.... Maybe one of these days... God Bless and good fishing... Lance
  14. Started around 11 Friday... WT was 46 and still that green stain look... Bite was steady at times and then it was dead for periods... Best working depth seemed to be 8 feet down from 11-15 feet of water... Minnows Caught 30 keepers and a few toss backs in the mix... Used all 5 dozen minnows and switch some to jigs but no luck 14.5”, paper thin and sickly looking... I’ve caught several 14-16 inch crappie the past half year looking like this... Are they just old? Be nice to have a little sunshine at some point so March Madness will get here God Bless and good fishing... Lance
