5/4 and 5/7 crappie report

Recommended Posts

Put in on 5/4 at State Park and headed toward Shawnee Bend.  Fished some deep cuts along a bluff.  Water temps were 63 to 64 degrees.  Fish were scattered except for one spot we hit were they were ganged up.  We ended up catching our limit of 30 crappie.  Probably caught 70 fish total including bass, perch, and white bass.  All came on either a 1/16th ounce jig in white, or yellow and white.  

On 5/7 I put in at Long Shoal and headed toward the Hwy 7 bridge and fished a cove on the east side.  The water temps had risen significantly since Friday.  74 degree water.  Started about 2:00 pm and quit at 5:00.  Brought home my limit of 15 crappie.  3 were females that still had eggs but they were runny.  Think the spawn is almost over.   All came on a 1/16th ounce white jig in 2 to 6 foot of water.

Good report I also fished the same days as yourself but put in at Bucksaw and went East and had about the same results most of my fish came on the Electric Chicken color but the warmest water that I found was 65 degrees. Black and chartreuse worked early then as the sun came up the electric chicken worked better we caught lots of fish mostly males but some females and some of them were ready to spawn. 1/16 oz road runner jigs were the best for us.
