It's crappie time on Kinkaid Lake.
Also going to try walleye and smallmouth by island and dam areas.
I fell in love with the lake last August and have been back two more times.
Personal best smallmouth is 7.8 from a lake in PNW.
BROKE ARKANSAS PB in November 2020 at 5.2#
Illinois record 3.2 Fox River 1988. They have been in Kinkaid for over a dozen years, so they are swimming around somewhere.

Fished Kincaid sun 8-5. No Muskie for us. Seen a 47 caught trolling. Got some gills(small) couple Crappie. Bad reception, won’t let me post pics
Heading here next week for the 1st time, any help would b great. Want to try Musky & Crappie. Canceled our up north trip because of ice already! So have no clue on baits or sucker fishing if they r available ?? & where? TIA I will report next week
Kincaid is not on the list but call the Marina.
Are the 2 state run boat ramps going to open o. May 1?
Fished down there last Wednesday and we caught all our fish in and behind the weeds right on the bank fishing minnows and jigs 8" deep. It's a deep lake but dont think they wont be VERY shallow! We didnt have any really big fish but caught a 3 man limit of 9 1/2" to 13" fish.
Heading down to Kinkaid Thursday 5/16 to fish for some Crappies through the weekend. Any tips would be appreciated, water temp/depths/baits where fish are being caught would be helpful.
Thanks very much,
