Columbus Lake Mississippi crappie fishing report
Well Tyler and I got out and enjoyed a fun half day of fishing on Columbus this weekend. We started a little late so the weather would warm up a bit for Tyler and quit a little early because we were not catching many crappiei and no real quality crappie. We single poled and used every jig in the box tipped with minnows. We caught about 12 keepers and a good many short fish but landed way less than half the crappie we hooked. The fish were just biting terribly light and we couldn't get them to stay on. We did have some excitement. Tyler hooked a about a 3 foot long Gar and wanted to land it. Was a good fight and fun to watch but the Gar came off at the boat thank goodness. A little later Tyler fell out of the boat and had the funnest look on his face when he came up. I will never forget it.
Anyway we caught most of our fish in the 8 foot deep range suspended up at about 4 or 5 foot deep and they were definitely relating to big drops.
