I knew it!

Recommended Posts

I knew I didn’t have em figured out yet.  Two days in a row caught limits of nice crappie.  Couldn’t beat em off of me.  Went back 48 hours later and they’re gone.  All the scanning and trolling I could do in 3 hours and within a half mile of that spot and no luck.  Water temps rose 5 degrees and I assumed they went deeper but I couldn’t find them there either.  
 

These crappie are sure tough to figure out.  One minute they’re all over you and then they’re nowhere to be found.  Oh well, the kid and I sure enjoyed being out there.  I guess finding them and figuring out the pattern is half the fun.

I’m convinced that each time Lance goes crappie fishing on Beaver, he starts out clean shaven. And he will fish as long as he needs to for his limit and then immediately comes home. Often with an 6 inch beard. 😂

What I’m trying to say is that almost no one figures out that lake and we all just appreciate the few good days we have on it!

I think I may have to agree but I know Lance has put in the time to learn the lake.  I’m really making an effort to do that myself but I keep finding myself flabbergasted every time I think I know what I’m doing.

Good point.  Having thought about it I think I may know where those fish might have moved to :).  I always say finding and patterning them is half the fun.  It’s fun making a plan for next time

The more I fish beaver the more I'm convinced these fish travel miles throughout days/weeks even being structural related fish. Or go swim out to main water when waves get choppy. I've been snorkeling bluffs and diving down 10-15 feet and notice a whole new world of what fish are doing. Did you know they are almost lobster size crawdads in beaver? Anyways hoping to get this gopro figured out and post some underwater video. 

I'll start at one end of the lake fishing early the morning not seeing a darn thing where I caught fish the day before, then end up several miles out later in the day, find shad deep in coves, to middle of the channel.

Some GP video would be cool to see, hope you can figure it out, if not Phil posts a lot of GP video and I'm sure he could help you out.

GP video would be amazing! I agree that the fish move a lot on Beaver. But at the same time, I see a lot of the same names at the top of the bass tournaments on that lake. If the fish kept moving then I’m not sure you’d see that. I just figured they were fishing offshore and had a great milk run of structure and brush to hit. I’m always shocked at how the winning weight is often in the 18 pound range. I could see that on table rock but that’s hard to imagine on Beaver.
