    Cold, Muddy, and High Water Still Caught some

    As you know, cold muddy water is not ideal and can be downright brutal to fish. You figured them out and I'm sure you were around the smallies too. Typically they will move from the hole they were holding in to the nearest spot out of the heavy current. Behind big rock outcroppings, big logs. Basically anything that creates an eddy. They won't move far, and the high water can really stack them up. If you catch one, there should be a bunch.
  12. I typically throw 1/32 oz tube jig under a cork. I'm usually fishing it in water under 60 degrees and they seem to like the slower fall. I will throw a 1/16 oz sometimes as well. For crappie, throw whatever color you have most confidence in and if they won't eat it keep switching colors or styles of baits. When corking, I throwing a black and chartreuse tube quite a bit.

    11/10 Mixed Bag

    Brought a couple buddies down to the lake for the weekend (Tan-Tar-A Area). Neither of these guys fish much so my goal was to just get them bit. We targeted Crappie, Bass, and Whites just throwing easy chuck and wind baits.... And we were successful catching all three. Crappie were caught shooting swim platforms on secondary points. Caught my biggest of the year.... A thick 13.5" Black! Bass were spread out. Best one came off the front corner of an isolated dock over deep water. Whites came on rocky mainlake banks with whatever wind we could find on them. Everyone caught a few fish so I was happy! Crappie - BG Baby Shad on a 1/16 oz Jakked Baits Blankenship Shooter Head.... That head is the DEAL for shooting docks! Bass - Underspin with Keithech and Red Eye Shad Whites - Red Eye Shad and Roostertail
