We caught the majority of our fish in 2.5-4.0 feet of water, fishing double minner rigs, with the top hook only about 6" to a foot deep. I know this sounds crazy, but it happened. The water temp was around 87-90 degrees and the bigger fish were aggressive from about 11:30-2:00. We caught fish all day in this spot. We ended up with 8.62lbs for the tourney and every fish came from this spot. I found these fish Memorial Day and just hoped it would rain and cool the water off so they would stay here. The water did not cool off, but the fish stayed anyway. I would guess they were in there because of the large number of shad that were there. Here is a couple of pics from the pre-fishing trip.

Did I say we used almost 2lbs of minners. We also caught a few fish on jigs. Orange and Chartruse seemed to work well tipped with a minner.

When crappiei are not relating to the bottom of the lake. The fish are staging in the middle zone of water. This happens frequently in summer, when fish get inactive.
