Thanks for the tips. I caught a good bit of crappie last year back in teh finger creeks that come off the back. We got mainly males that were sitting on beds, however we did find a few slabs in Feb back in there breeding. Once they hit the open water again, they were out of reach.
Will the Crappie be balled up in March or will they be spread out again already?
I'd love to grab a puppy drum or two.. I haven't gotten one in some time.
I don't think they'll be as thick by late March. It's all about water temps. It's been warm...now cold...hard to say. If water is in the low 50's atleast....look for specks to be on the prowl and skip the crappies!
I have fished these waters for the past 25 years and right now Slocum is good for crappie and bass a few nice strippers are being caught but have only heard of a few trout and drum since the first of the year. Some nice perch have been caught up the right fork and the left fork has been the crappie place.
I'll be in to pick up some new beatle spins and jigs when I get home. I ran my stock out last summer and didn't refill.
Those crappie in the back, are they being picked up via trolling smaller jigs or using minnows under a cork?
