Fished from 2:30 to 5:30. The crappie fishing was a little slow. Caught about 15 in the 3 hours trolling with white roadrunners and red/chartreuse roadrunners and crappie nibbles. The fish were scattered and mostly around docks or brushpiles. Did catch and release 6 to the fry daddy.

Fished on Monday from 7a-11a and found a lot of small crappie up close to shore and around trees. I was using minnows and a white road runner with a silver tail. The water was very clear and you could see 2' down. Did manage to catch three 10"+ crappie, two males and a female. Thought the big crappie had spawned until I filleted her and found eggs. Maybe with the cooler water they just backed off and the little ones came into the bank. I'm not sure but I'll be back out tomorrow to find out.

Fished yesterday for 6 hrs and ended up with 10 crappie. Biggest one was 12". All fish were caught up at the bank or near brush and trees. Lots of people using floats and minnows but a few of us were using jigs. I used white and red/chartreuse roadrunners with crappie nibbles. Everyone I talked with agreed the bite was very slow.

We fished yesterday from 7-3 and kept about 25 crappie. We started fishing up against the banks around brush and lay downs and had good luck. We also tried trolling in 10-14 fow and caught a few. The females were still full of eggs and getting ready to spawn, but this cooler, wet weather should hold off the spawn until next week.

Fished from 8:30-4pm and cleaned 21 crappie. Started out trolling and switched over to casting to the shore in the afternoon. Used white roadrunners mostly but did catch a few with red/chartreuse. Mostly males up on the banks and around lay downs. Find trees and brush in shallow water and you'll find the crappie.

Fished for four hours this morning. The bite was slow but did manage to catch 7 crappie. Kept 6, 3 males and 3 females. Caught them in 10-15 fow about 6-8 feet down. Used white roadrunners and red/chartreuse roadrunners. The water was stained and only able to see jigs about 12" down. Hopefully the spawn will be underway in a few weeks. Cold weather coming in toward the second half of the week will push it back.
