Beaver Lake Pool D on Tenn Tom

Fished Beaver Lake today with my neighbor, we got a late start today but still did pretty good. Fish were schooled up pretty good and devouring shad. Tried spider trolling jigs for a while but the fish were holding tight to cover today. Went back to single pole fishing a single jig on light line and that was the ticket.

I went down there expecting to catch alot of little fish which we did but I was pleasantly surprised to catch some decent sized fish too. We didn't have any slabs. We had some fish just over a pound but nothing getting close to 2 pounds. Most of the fish we keep were in the 10 to 12inch range. I just started fishing this lake again this year. I have some friends that have a house on the lake is the reason I started fishing down there again. This lake is ripe for someone to put a ton of bamboo condos in. Be prepared though this lake must be full of good sized bass because we caught a bunch of those too. My neighbor caught a 5 pounder that tangled up about half the trolling rods.

Helping control the crappiei population one trip at a time.

Have not fished Lock D in many years, looks like you done pretty good. Best I remember the lake is not every deep. Is the size of the crappiei pretty good?

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.
