Well I finally got my boat out of the shop and got a nice day to fish. I fished Yellow Creek at Pickwick. I caught about 25 crappiei, but could not find the big fish. I caught some in the 1 to 1/14 lb class. I kept 8 to eat. I caught these in 12 to 18 ft of water, water was stained. I used 1/16 oz Crappie101 jigs, Black Widow head with yellow and white tail, Bull Frog head with green and yellow tail, and Flamingo head with black and pink tail.

Pickwick Lake crappie report

Charlie Kent and Bob Garrison fished Pickwick Lake Sunday. They put in at Coleman Park to start and fished Indian Creek area. Caught a few crappiei then went out on the Lake and Bass fished a while. They then went to Yellow Creek and caught 14 keepers ranging up to about a pound. The fish came from 17 to 19 foot of water and the water temp was 40. The fish seemed to prefer the black crappie101 head with orange and chartreuse tail.
Good to see Charlie back on the water. His boat has been out of commission for a few weeks.

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.
