Slab Sunday

Finally back on the water Sunday after church.  Got started about 12:45 and fished to about 4:00.   Water temp was 43 and stained...   Looked perfect 

Didn’t really know what to expect after this lake has turned upside down in a weeks time...  Up, down and up again...  Geez

They bit pretty fast at the get go.  Got 8 in no time and then they came in spurts.   The wind got to whipping which might of been why.  Got tossed around a bit... 

Best bite was rigging about 13 feet down about 18-20 fow.   Caught a few at 10 feet down but more consistent at 13 feet.

I quit about 4ish with a limit and headed for the house...

Amazed by health of the fish this year...

Pics below...  God bless and good fishing Lance

Lance, are you mostly finding fish in open water or near brush?  With the water fluctuations I kinda felt the crappie would pull into main lake near vertical structure instead of brush piles.  I’m still learning, but wondering if I’m right?

In open water.  I never fish brush, docks, trees etc...  never any cover.   I look for rises, edges along the channel, swings.  Basically how the bottom of the lake lays out and how they relate to it...   These fish are just roaming and eating.  So basically find them on the graph and adjust depth to where I see them...  Then follow the contour they are on and work em over until they quit.  Then go to looking again by my map.  Then repeat.   Water fluctuations ain’t gonna move them out.  It more likely moves them up and down in the column but not out.  They ain’t gonna leave where the food is staying concentrated.  
 

With current I like looking for areas where they can get out of it.  Like a rise or channel line were they can lay and not have to work against it.
