County Crappie Day 2

Recommended Posts

Went crappie fishing again today, very windy but the sun was shining. I had the whole lake to myself again. Started slow because I couldn't get the feel of the 1/16 blade bait I was throwing. Tied on a 1/8 oz. propeller bait and started fishing deeper water letting it hit bottom before starting my retrieve. Couple of turns of the handle and thump,fish on. First fish was a slab crappie, 15 1/4 inches. Took a picture or three and after a quick measurement let her go. From there the action was non stop until about 10. Tried another spot, one fish in an hour. Tied on my last 1/8 since I lost the other three. Caught 7 more with 8 casts. Total for the morning was 40-50 crappie, at least a dozen were over 14 inches with three topping the 15. Only three crappie were under 10 inches, caught some nice bass and a few white bass as well. My best day size wise ever at this lake.Not a single male, all girls and all caught in deeper water. Everything was released. Going back tomorrow for round 3, taking my son this time with more of the same baits since I tied more when I got home this afternoon.

They reopened this lake on Tuesday, I've been fishing it since the 80's.

They were loving those jigs. Congrats on a couple of great local crappie fishing! And you didn't need to hide in a camo blind to catch those fish!
