Jan. 27 Sardis Radio Tracking Report

Jan. 27
Put in at Coontown today where water temperature was 46.1 degrees. Searched area of lake between Coontown and Clear Creek. This was the first time searching that area and found four new fish that had not been contacted since release.

The fish were in water 19-36 feet deep and surface temperatures between 44.9 and 52.7 degrees. Today's four fish bring the total to 21 of 25 crappiei located since release. If the weather will cooperate, I'll try to search further North and East of Coontown on Saturday.

Check out the map. The concentration of points in the middle is the release area. The tracks between points didn't come out as I'd hoped, but I think it's still interesting.

Caleb, with only 4 crappiei left to be located it looks like we may have a 100% survival rate. I was surprised you located fish up toward Coontown. I like the map deal. John Woods

John, since you caught these fish can you tell if it looks like they have returned to where you caught them? Also can you tell how much distance fish are moving from day to day. tks danny.

Danny, I should have specified that the map above covers release on Dec. 18 until locations of Jan. 26. That's six weeks of movements with only a few locations.

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.
