Hello everyone, Just wanted to say what a great site very Helpfull. I have been here at Ft Bragg on and off for 18 years, but just recentlly bought a boat and got back to doing what I really enjoy since I finally have the time. I have been having some sucess at Jordan, fishing for crappie. I am just ready for them to start the spawn! LOL The sucess was first catching about 20 keepers under 64 bridge then on thursday about 10 keepers close to Farrington bridge then they just stopped. I think that all the rain and the high water has them spooked about laying the eggs because the high water will eventully go down and that will leave the eggs high and dry. Could that be the case ord oes anyone have any knowledge or ideas on this? I would greatly appreciate it. Oh and also BTW while fishing for crappie on Thursday I caught a 6 pound channel on 4 pound test. Put up one heck of a good time LOL Thanks guys.

Welcome to the site! there are lots of very knowledgeable people here compared to a lot of sites. If you are in to crappie fishing and are driving to jordan lake you may want to try Buckhorn Dam in Lee county off of Hwy 42. used to be a lot of crappie there but it has been a while since I have fished there. :D
