10/22 Crappie Report

Recommended Posts

Fished from late morning until about 6 pm and struggled. Caught a decent amount of dinks and a few white bass. Ended up with three keeper crappie that were no-doubters.

Fished the mid-lake region and hit a lot of brush piles. Most of my focus was on piles near creek channels (especially bends), but did also fish piles well back into creeks. Marked quite a few fish on channel drops around 24 fow, but could not get any to bite.

The three keepers came off of one pile that was fairly close to the creek channel just into a cove. Caught them around 16 foot down in 19-21 fow on jigs. I am honestly not sure if they came out of the pile, or if they were following shad through. All three were white crappie. Water temps were 61-64 degrees.

Hopefully you all can figure them out!

I suspect the full moon has something to do with the daytime lull.

Got skunked for the first time in a long time on Pomme yesterday.

Might try the same tactics just shallower. Sounds like my old man caught them in about 10-15 the past two days in the brush . He had 14 yesterday 

Thanks for the advice Lvn2Fish. I tried some shallower brush piles at that depth, but I guess they were the wrong ones!
