Columbus Lake Mississippi Crappie report 6-24-10

Joe Wilson and Don Hudson fished Columbus lake today for 2.5 hours. They caught 18 keepers in about 6 foot of water. The funny thing is they were only fishing 1.5 to 2 foot deep. This is the second time I have heard the crappiei are suspending really high in the last couple of weeks.
This is a picture of Don with one of the crappie they caught today.

How hot is the surface water on Columbus? Were these fish caught on structure or out in open water, the picture shows to be pretty open. I am asking these questions because of a theory I am working on and it relates to the fish being shallow when by all thought, they shouldn't be.

Beau, the fish we caught 2 weeks ago were in 2-4' of water and tight to structure early in the am, but loosened up as the sun got higher. The water temps were from 89-91 and we also caught our best fish from 11:00-1:30. It's crazy, but true. We were at Gainsville Lake.

Thanks Tracy, we are doing a study here in Oklahoma on just that thing. All the info we can gather will hopefully lead us where we need to go. Have a good 4th.

The surface temps on Columbus this weekend were 88 to 90. The crappiei were caught tight on structure. I am answering because Joe can't type.. Ha Ha Steve can back me up.
