Little Dixie 4-27-16


Recommended Posts

With the threat of severe weather passing, I decided to head out to Little Dixie to try for some crappie. I got out to the lake a little after 7 pm. There was a slight breeze from the southwest. The water was relatively flat. I fished a 1/64 oz black and green jig and float combination. I started by casting parallel to the bank trying to stay about 10 to 15 feet off the bank. Slow reel and sit retrieve worked best. Most of the crappie were males. After the sun went down, I had some success casting into deeper water and caught mostly females with a couple that were full of eggs. The problem when I cast into the deeper water was that I got more bluegill bites. I fished until I could no longer see my float. Packed it up around 8:40. I had caught 22 crappie between 6.5 and 9 " and 7 bluegill. Not bad for a spur of the moment fishing trip. There may not be many large crappie taken out of this lake, but I enjoy the numbers of fish that are available.
