Slow around here

Everyone deer hunting or what?  It’s been awhile since I’ve seen anybody posting their fishing stories.  I’ve been out a few times trying to relocate the crappie but don’t have them figured out yet.  I tried dock shooting for the first time on Sunday.  Not easy in the wind.  I fired those jigs pretty much everywhere but where I wanted them.  Finally gave up and went back to just trying to cast jigs near the docks.  Not much luck but I think it was more me just trying to learn something new.  
 

Located some new structure near War Eagle but the wind was aweful.  Decided to go upwind and try to float some minnows on corks over the brush.  Got a few bites but just couldn’t stay out there with the waves.  Hard to watch a cork on two foot waves.    Gave up and came home.  Still trying new things.  I’ll eventually get a pattern dialed in.  I’m thinking of hiring a guide or two this winter in an effort to learn new tricks.  I figure a few hundred on a guide may save me several weekends of trying stuff that’s not working.  In any event I sure am having fun trying.

Yea, welcome to Beaver.  I have lived on this lake three years and I’m still learning.  

I’ve fished here most of my life.  Moved to the lake area a few years ago and have more immediate access now.  Crappie in spring and summer I can usually do.  After that I’ve got a lot to learn

I haven’t fished Beaver in the fall in over 3 years...   I remember why now...  I stink at it.🤣...  Was doing really good until the beginning of October and that’s when they quit biting for me... Always happens??  Don’t really know what I’m doing wrong 

 Should just hauled off to other lakes like normal routine but wanted to see if I could figure it out but dang it sucks...  Gone up both rivers, fished out of hickory with all the same results.  Just a few keepers and tons of short 7 inch crappie...  Seeing tons of bait and fish just can’t get many to bite.  They just bump the bait and let off...  I always think that’s because they ain’t hungry.   With all the bait in the water I can see why.  But would think I could get 10 or so keepers to commit.  
 

Oh well December is usually when I get back on Beaver and they start getting consistent again
