Bay Springs was hot today, 52 fish. Started fishing early around 6am. Fish were biting awesome. All fish came on white shad shaped baits. Fished with a friend that was camped out in the campground. Sorry no pictures we cleaned them at his camp. No really big fish but all were keepers didn't have to measure very many. Fish were deep in 25 to 29 feet of water. We caught all the fish running jigs 18 to 20 feet deep, couldn't get a bite a decent bite any shallower. Caught 1/2 the fish on main lake points and the rest came from deep areas way back up in hollows.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
