  1. Time to get out and catch some slabs! The crappie are in a mixed pattern, still hanging on to the fall pattern while transitioning to the winter pattern. Right now, you can catch your limit any way you want – standing timber, brush piles, channel edges or schools of shad. We had two limits this morning in less than an hour. Here are a few things to point you in the right direction: Channel edges – fish 8’-20’ deep in 20’-30’ of water. The fish are hanging out right on the edge of the channel around brush, logs or trees. You can troll down the edge of the channel until you find a ni
  2. The fall pattern is in full swing and the feeding frenzy is on! The crappie are actively chasing the shad and moving shallower every few days. The crappie are holding to standing timber in 6-12 feet of water waiting to ambush the shad or a Crappie Slammers jig! The fish are anywhere from 6-10 feet deep. Focus your attention at the end of bluffs, coves or creeks. They are still solid fish with thick shoulders. The crappie are still on brush piles, they have been transitioning from deeper summer piles to shallower ones, focus on brush in 8-15 feet of water. Here are the other details:
  3. The fall pattern is on! I'll be posting a new fishing report soon, it's a lot of fun right now! Recently I've had a lot of success on glow chart and toothpaste. Brad
  4. Crappie fishing is excellent – not only quantity but quality! The last two weeks I’ve been limiting out in a few hours or less. Both arms of the lake are the same. Here are the details: Brush piles – crappie are congregating around brush piles on the flats and off the points of small creeks/coves. Try piles in 15’ – 25’ of water, fish are generally 10’ – 15’ deep. If you are not getting bit over the top of the brush look for the crappie suspending about a boat length away. Standing timber – the fish are holding to the trees! Try 15’ – 30’ of water and fish 8’ – 12’ deep. I’m
  5. Not sure about a bass report, however I did catch 15-20 bass per trip while crappie fishing. Most were small, but there were a few keepers sprinkled in. They will give the old crappie rod a workout! Brad
  6. I should take more pictures! It's been an awkward year with the water, hoping it gets to normal soon. The plan is to be on the water on a regular basis! Brad
  7. It's been a while since I've posted a report. Here you go! Crappie are slightly scattered around brush and standing timber in isolated areas, however other areas (within a mile) they are stacked tightly together. If you aren't getting bit or catching multiple fish in a particular area (ex: brush pile) watch your graph about a boat length away from the pile, we caught several just suspended 20-30 feet from the brush. Recently went out for two days and fished both the Pomme and Lindley arms. Had 30 keepers both days in under three hours. The fish are solid, thick and very healthy. Her
  8. Due to high water we will cancel the June 15th Crappie Slammers Tournament. Thanks for your understanding. Brad
  9. Sorry for the delay, I've been out of the country the past several weeks. The entry is $25 per person, you can have as many as you want in the boat, the boat will weigh 7 fish for the team total. Most people fish with 2-3 per boat. Thanks, Brad
  10. Currently it's 22' plus!!! It is raining with more rain in the forecast - doesn't look good for a while. Hopefully the Mississippi gets down quickly and all the lakes can start releasing water to ease things. It will be an interesting next few months on the lake. Hopefully the officials can chime in and let us know what they are anticipating. Brad
