I fished Pickwick Lake just a few hours yesterday after getting my boat out of the shop. I caught a good number of crappiei and some really nice ones. I had 4 fish 1.75 and a couple of 1.5 pound fish. I did catch a good many small crappie mixed in with them. It seemed the crappie were either really nice or really small. Very few 1 to 1.25 pound crappie were there to be had. The crappie definitely preferred the Crappie101.com "Money" jig even over my old stand by "Slimy"
Most of the crappie came from around 20 foot of water and stuck deep in cover.

On the final day of their 3 day guide trip with Charlie Kent the Clyde and Ted Eads decided on Bear creek, leaving all the good crappiei they were in in Yellow creek for a change in scenery. Looks like Charlie picked up right where they left off and put the guys on some Bear Creek crappie. These fish were caught hand poling in 7 to 12 foot of water and changed jigs going to the crappie101.com Vitamin C jig.
Here are a couple of pictures from Charlie's guide trip on Pickwick Lake this week. Clyde and Ted Eads were Charlie's clients for 3 days and started out the first 2 days on Yellow Creek. They caught a bunch of crappiei both days. The first day the crappie were 7 to 12 foot deep and preferred the crappie101.com Slimy Jigi. On the second day the group moved to a little deeper water ranging from 8 to 15 foot deep but again caught the fish on the Slimy jig. The weather was great and all the fishermen caught a lot of crappie.
