I had off 3 days straight and spent a ton of time on the water. Picked up a sunburn, several bass, a bunch of crappie and some relaxation on the yak. I have no pics cause i lost my iphone and this one sucks. (Get a new iphone in a week) I ended up catching a 5-6lb largemouth on a 2" grub under a float while crappie fishing (22"). With 4# line and a light crappie outfit that was interesting and she took me for a ride in the yak, but i landed her. Caught the crappie on Bobby Garland's baby shad (threadfin shad & blue ice) and also caught them on Charlie Brewer's 1.5" paddle tail grubs. The crappie were tight to cover in brush and i had a blast finding them. My brother also joined me and caught a beautiful 2lb bullhead cat on a plastic worm while bass fishing.

Pics will be posted after the next week when i get the new phone. LOL

Any body that has been crappie fishing lately, I'd like to hear from you on what you had luck with and where on the lake! Thanks fellas

Very nice. You guys fishing above Pilot Mt.? I'll probably hit the stretch between Donaha and Lewisville this weekend if the weather holds. Interesting about the crappie. I can hammer em in large back eddies in the fall and even early winter, but the dang things just seem to disappear once the weather warms. I'll pick up a few around brush in the spring, but come summer the things simply vanish. I've hit the deepest water I know trying to locate them in the hot months with no luck. I can't imagine that hey suspend in a river during hot weather but maybe they do. Go figure. Nice bass, people don't give this river enough credit. My personal best on the river was a 5 lb-3 oz and she came on a Shad Rap in April right from under the I-40 bridge.

When I used the word "Yakkin" in the title I was referring to kayaking....not Yadkin as in Yadkin River. I do fish that river and like it a lot when it's not high and beyond muddy. You've caught crappie in the Yadkin? I've been fishing still water so far this spring but the river music has been calling my name. I'll be posting river reports soon. Waters still a little chilly for wet wading the smaller flows. I'll be spending some time on the Yadkin soon, I'm looking forward to it.
