Crappie Time is Here!
Tip: Crappie are moving to the banks. This is the best time to catch a limit of crappie and impress your friends. Either use a minnow or a crappie jig about 2 or 3 feet under a small bobber and move along the sunny banks dropping your bobber near every stick and fall down.
Richard Fields won $50 Instant Cash for this 6 lb 5 oz Largemouth caught Sunday 2/9/14
Willie Curry Caught this 4 1/2 lb Spotted Bass with a Deep Diving Rapala about 15 feet deep.
Tip: Richard Fields uses a traditional winter lure for big bass fishing in the cold weather. He calls it the jig and "pork chop". Others refer to it as a jig and pig. It is a heavy bass jig usually 3/8 oz with a dark skirt and a trailer to slow the fall of the jig. In the past this trailer was made of real pork rind. More recently plastic trailers of the same shape have replaced the pork because it doesn't dry out. Fish the jig and pig with slow jerks to imitate the movement of crawdads.
Lake Clarity: Stained

Mike Salter caught these nice bass along with some nice catfish in deep water fishing with his buddy, Howard Dewberry. They were using Sassy Shads rigged on light line so they could get their baits down in very deep water in the Narrows at the end of Goat Island.
