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.

A flat is just as it sounds. This is an area of shallow water that has no defined drop into deeper water. The water depth is uniform or gets deeper very gradually. Flats can be found at the backs of all the bays, in coves within the bays and on the main lake where the flat land adjacent to the river was covered up by water when the rivers were backed up by damming.
