A friend of mine and I fished Reelfoot Friday 10/22/10. Pitched jigs around exposed stumps in 7 to 8 foor of water.
Keep 45. If you can brave the stumps. The bite is pretty good.
Be careful and look for the stumps just under the surface they call them "WidowMakers". Junebug and Charturse seems to get the most action with Black and Charturse coming in second.

Yea and if they dont hurry up and get this spillway in, we are gonna be in bad trouble. They are pumping water out of the water table where they are working and Im pretty sure its having a big effect on the lake level.Heard a guy up there last weekend say the lake was losing 2 inches a week

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.
