Crappie 1/3 & 1/4

Recommended Posts

Went out both Thursday and Friday to try and catch more slabs. Quite the chilly start to the mornings but calm and flat days on the water are always a bonus in January!  Over the two days we ended up with 32 nice crappie and one keeper walleye.  I have noticed that the crappie bite has really slowed down since really hammering them in mid December, I’m thinking they might have moved out to deeper water??  Water temps are 38 to 40 and we found the crappie on brush piles in 20 to 30 feet catching all of them on jigs. Tight Lines!

I was thinking that also as I’m not showing the fish that were on the piles a few weeks back.  Maybe the lower water temps might also have something to do with it???  What I have figured out is that some piles hold almost exclusively small fish and the piles where I am catching most all my keeper fish hold 99% keepers, most of those 11.5 inches and bigger.  Tight Lines!

On those piles that hold 99% keepers, we need GPS coordinates!  😁

Just to the left of that huge sycamore tree on the point just north of the bridge. You will know when you are there when you see that loon in the water, the loon with the bad eye. If the loon is not around look for the stump that is located by the chunk-rock bank next to the old catfish float.   Need I say more?  Tight Lines! 😁
