Crappie going good?

Recommended Posts

Rumors are crappie are being caught in Long and James area. No details but they should be out from spawning banks and suspended. Anyone trying them?

yep!! they are in the main lake channells on the James arm.We launched @ Cape Fair this am, four fisherman in two seperate boats caught fifteen in one boat 20 in the other.No luck in the coves. All very nice slabs averaging 16 inches all nice and fat threw back maybe 4 or 5 dinks. majority caught on minnows and before noon.I know this aint exactly "tearin-em-up" but they are there! The ramp at Cape Fair bridge was a night mare @ sundown.

beats me. catch 5 and 2 male whites. 7am till noon. Tried everything I know of in shallow water. All 5 crappies were just over 10". would have tried the deeper bite but forgot to take the graph of my bass boat.

Graph?? What's a graph?

Note: I haven't had a "working" depth finder on my boat in 3 years. Not bragging- confessing I'm lazy more than anything.

I usually use the ol' count method for depth- or lift the rod as high as it'll go and drop the jig. I figure that's about 12 feet.

So that's why we never go in your boat, is because you don't have a graph.

I can see a Christmas Present will save me some gas.

Buster hit it very hard up Long Creek today, and got the skunk.

They have got to start soon.

Second hand report minnow fishing was good in the guts/channels and something was biting because there were boats everywhere bank hugging.
