Either come home heroes or come home zeros. Crappie report


Recommended Posts

 Conversation with my wife Lisa the other night.   “What are you thinking about”  Oh where fish could be at.  “Their in the lake”.  SMH…

Started going back where I’ve caught them before this time of year.  Figure that creek arm I was in a couple years ago is worth a shot.  We might come home heroes or we might come home zeroes but the days already been made because we fishing…

I figure the fish would be hanging at the mouth of the creek arm in 30 fow so started there.  Started seeing fish scattered out but not as bad as it has been.  I said we’ll come back.  I want more grouped up fish and maybe they’ll be along the creek channel and relating to the trees that go down it.  Right away tree after tree we pick a keeper or two off and weed through tons of shorts.  Stayed pretty busy.  Once you got to less than 25 fow pickings got thin.  Later in the day about 10am fish seemed spread out and just disappeared.  I said to Jerry let’s get back up to the front and see if they moved over deeper water.  That’s all it took.  Started steadily catching again.  Shut it down about 1 with 16 keepers and burned very little gos…  I’ll take it after how it’s been for me and a couple other good friends.  Just been the weirdest spring.

Water temp was 63-65.  Lake elevation 1127.5…. Setup was minnow rigging with BnM 16ft PSTs and 1oz rigs I tie up with Vanguard Tackle/Pico Lures.  Perfect set up for covering more open water flats quicker.  Which for sure is the pattern soon.  

Back at this weekend if weather holds.  Gonna go check other traditional areas and see.

Good Fishing and God Bless….

He's fishing in that shirt.  Confidence.

I am the master of my unspoken words, and the slave to those that should have remained unsaid. (unknown)
