Sardis Lake Crappie Fishing Reports
It was another great day on Sardis Lake. The air temp had to be in the 70 range with the water temp at almost 59 degrees where we were. The crappiei bite was on. Jamie & Joey worked me like a rented mule. I was down to my T shirt and still burning up in the afternoon. We caught 42 keeper crappie and a boat load of throw backs. We started out near the dam in 20 foot of water moving a little shallower as the day warmed up. We were using 14 foot BnM Trolling Poles with the Woods double minnow rig and live bait. If this warming trend continues there may be an early spawn.Read more
Took my dad to Sardis Sat. we had a great day catching over 100 fish total with 37 keepers. This will be one of those trips that my dad will never forget. We slow trolled capps and coleman 14 ft pole with double hook minnow rigs.
My guests this weekend were gary "Gooey" Contner and Greg Fogt from Indian Lake Ohio. These guys are top notch fishermen and great company.
Greg landed big fish for the weekend with a giant 3 lb 2 oz black crappiei. We also caught numerous 2 lb + white crappie. Greg confessed that he had never caught a crappie over 13 inches before this weekend. He has a sure enough trophy now!
I just got this crappie fishingi report from Charlie Kent. He and James Bullock are out on Sardis lake. Tried single pole fishing early but did not have any luck. Started trolling double minnow rigs and have caught these 2 so far.
I am out here on Sardis again today on another guide trip and just caught this black nose crappiei. Man these things are pretty. I will have a full update and pictures this evening.
The crappiei bite was better today. We caught several crappie in the 2 lbs. plus range. Used BnM 14 ft trolling poles and double crappie rigs with live bait. Water temp about 40 degrees. Will have end of day pictures tomorrow. Woods Guide Service
