Crappie Report 10/8

Tough day to say the least. Fished from Lightfoot down to Twin Coves. We managed two shorts, a bass, and a drum.

Vertically jigged and pitched jigs over brush along the bluffs anywhere from 5 to 25 feet down. We also briefly tried the timber. Even tried trolling some Flicker Shads.

Water temps were in the low to mid 60s with a tough south to southwest wind. Water clarity was only 2-3 feet. Perhaps it is turning over? Lake sure is low.

Not sure what we were doing wrong. There were shad everywhere. We were marking fish near many of the shad pods too.

Pretty similar to what I found at Truman on Monday. Pomme is only 0.71 feet low so pretty good shape really. The weather changes really seem to mess with crappie. I did talk to a couple of guys at Nemo yesterday who had 8 keepers and several shorts. Minnoww around pole timber.

My mistake MOPanfisher. Looked a lot lower than that!

My normal fishing partner fished the same area I did last Saturday and had very similar results.

I am wondering if I need to expand my horizons a bit and try different parts of the lake. Not sure if the Lindley side is any better than the Pomme side. I just don't get up that way enough to figure out what works and where. Guess I don't have my priorities straight!

My priorities aren't anywhere close to right. I see Pomme 5 days a week but this year have fished it maybe 5 -6 times. Heck its always good to go exploring another part of the lake. Sometimew when the fishing is bad the learning is good. On Truman Monday even though we didn't do well catching we found a couple of places that come spring WILL have walleye on them, or at least they should.
