Guys I was fishing in 65 degree water today in the back of a pump station. Caught 22 keepers and the eggs were mushy and a off white color I think there not to far away from laying their eggs. If weather holds out. May try to wade and catch some in the shallows where the boats cant get to.

I was in Beech Bend pump station not Busseltown. Water is low but you can get up through there if you know how. Wide open, I have a small boat and it goes pretty good in the shallow mud holes. You gonna fish down there this week. open Monday.

Looks like a cold snap is moving in. It may slow them down for another week. It wont be much longer thow. I would like to see the water level come up a couple of feet with about another week of seventy degree weather.

Where are the fish?

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, crankbaits 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.
