Pickwick Lake crappie fishing report 3/7/2011

I fished Pickwick Monday. The bite was slow and the fish were very finicky. This was my fourth trip to Pickwick in the last two weeks. The bite was mostly on white. I am a single pole vertical fisherman. I ran 1/32 ounce jig heads with some sort of white tail over structure and cover in 12 to 20 feet of water. I tried the last deep water close to shallow spawning areas thinking the fish might be moving up but only found small fish close to shallower water. The bigger fish still seem to be holding around the main lake and feeding mainly on shad. All of the fish I kept were in the 12 to 14 inch range. A had a few bigger fish but most fell in this range. All the keepers were thick and healthy. Also caught alot of smaller fish I guess that is a good sign for later on this year when they grow up that is if other fisherman will also throw them back to grow up. This is my first post so feedback would be appreciated. I am guessing this forum works like others I have used, thanks.

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, crank baits 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.
