Crappie On The Banks

Recommended Posts

4 of us went out Thursday night and fished from about 6:00 till about 10:30 and caught around 100 crappie several shorts but we took home about 25 or so good keeper. All were caught from right on the bank out about 15 foot any where from 2 to 4 feet deep on minnows and I personally caught about 30 on a pumpkin and chartreuse jig with an eight ounce head working it pretty slow. They would just stop it and you would feel pressure on the rod. All caught from the bank around docks across the water from Pittsburgh landing.

Thanks for the info. I'll be on the lake sometime Monday. The bank on the southwest side from the Pittsburg landing has been good in the past. However, I'm not sure the brush piles are still there.

If you were catching smaller crappie, I would think the larger females will be moving into the banks sometime this week.......

fished at big hollow today from 2 till about 5:30 caught a few shorts but nothing else. Only pattern we could figure was to let the bait (minnow) sit in front of them for a bit and let them think about taking it.

A friend and i fished yesterday from 1-10pm around bolivar landing from 1-8pm we had 4 fish it was very speratic. from 8-10pm the fishing really picked up it didnt matter the color and caught fish in several locations, we ended with 22 crappie. I thought the day was going to be a waste but turned out pretty well.

Is Bolivar landing a pretty good place to fish? I have never been there but it is about 30 min closer to where I live than Pittsburgh landing. I am thinking about going this Thursday night again, right before the weather changes again on Friday.

3 of us went again on Sunday after noon and fished from 3:00 till about 9:30 and brought home 5 keepers but caught several shorts again. jigs or minnows didn't seam to matter and we were catching them any where from 15 feet off the bank at 2 to 3 feet deep to right up on the edge of the water. red and chartreuse and pumpkin and chartreuse was the most productive jigs.

If I was working a jig "with an eight ounce head" on my crappie rod.... I would HAVE TO WORK IT SUPER SLOW !!!!!!! ( LOL )

Hey LEB, Bolivar landing is a pretty good place to lauch from its got some nice coves with some good cover. Its a pretty good ramp needs a yard light pretty bad though. it has a good mix between standing timber, peet gravel banks and bluffs. You should try it out sometime its worth a shot. Ive heard the fishing is getting better heard of a few limits being caught so keep trying and your bound to get lucky thats always my hope!

Fished for about 3 hours this evening and it was pretty terrible. Caught a few 6-7 inch fish but nothing worth even speaking of i think this cold front kill the fishing off pretty well. Searched for some buffalo in the coves and could barely find any of those. the wind was cold and didnt lay after dark so it was a pretty poor night all around.
