Late Crappie spawn

Recommended Posts

Males are finally getting dark but the girls are still full of eggs. Lake was flooded but has been dropping and for the last few trips I have been able to reach some pre-spawn fish in the brushpiles by wading with 9 and 10 foot rods. Blade baits and duck feather jigs are both working for me, the crappie have been really thumping the baits leaving no doubt when they hit. I don't know where the bigger 14 - 15 + inch females went, haven't gotten one of those in over a week but 11-13 inchers are fun too.

Ive been fishing a lot of the lakes in TDL the last month and the crappie haven't really known what to do.  Catching some right on the bank in a foot or 2 of water, and catching others back off in 5 or 6 fow, and even been catching a few on points and in the middle of coves in 12+ FOW.  Ill be out there sunday, so we will see what they are doing then.
