CrappieRadio's picture

By CrappieRadio - Posted on 07 February 2010

Put in at Engineer Pointi today, water temp: 40.0 degrees. Searched the area from the dam to the mouth of Clear Creek and Point 7. Located 15 transmitters today, depths ranging from 10 to 43 feet and surface water temperatures of 40.9 to 44.9 degrees.

One new fish today, so 22 of 25 transmitters have been located since tracking began on Jan. 18. Fish were tagged and released on Dec. 18. Several fish were found with schools that were suspended at 12-26 feet deep over bottom of 24-34 feet deep. Good luck fishing and please let me know if you catch a tagged fish.

Check out the map for fish locations from Jan. 27 to Feb. 7. Release area is marked and each fish is marked with bottom depth at that point. The two points that are the farthest NE are the same fish located twice (purple 19 and green 11). The rest are all individuals.

I only wish that were true. I did find a new one today, so only 3 are MIA. As for all of them living, I've got my suspicions about a few that aren't moving and one that might be moving too much.

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.
