Crappie Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I've posted a report.  Here you go!

Crappie are slightly scattered around brush and standing timber in isolated areas, however other areas (within a mile) they are stacked tightly together.  If you aren't getting bit or catching multiple fish in a particular area (ex: brush pile) watch your graph about a boat length away from the pile, we caught several just suspended 20-30 feet from the brush.  Recently went out for two days and fished both the Pomme and Lindley arms.  Had 30 keepers both days in under three hours.  The fish are solid, thick and very healthy.  Here's the details:

Crappie are 8-12' deep in 16-30' of water.  They are biting both vertical jig  as well as pitching and swimming it back.  The bite is light and you need to pay close attention.  I used the following jigs and colors for these trips:

Crappie Slammers jigs (available at I AM Outdoors on Hwy 65 in Buffalo, MO, you should check out this store, it's awesome!)

Style: Lil' Shad, Shimmer Stix, Thinner Minner

Color: Electric Lime, Glow Chart, Toothpaste, Pink

Now the lake is nearly back to normal I hope to be on the water more!  Good luck - catch a boat load!

Congrats on catching a bunch of keeper crappie! Great report! Sound like a fish fry to follow! Would have loved to seen some fish photos.

Not sure about a bass report, however I did catch 15-20 bass per trip while crappie fishing.  Most were small, but there were a few keepers sprinkled in.  They will give the old crappie rod a workout!
