Crappie Time is Here!
Tip:The recent rains have muddied the lake a little but the particles in the water have warmed up the lake to the high 60s. This was good for fishing, even the bream are now moving up to shallow areas. Crickets seem to work better than worms this weekend.
Willie Curry Caught this 4 1/2 lb Spotted Bass with a Deep Diving Rapala about 15 feet deep.
Tip: Bass have been very aggressive feeding up after a long winter. Many Crappie fishermen have got bass with minnows up on the bank while the bigger bass like crawdad imitations, like jig and pig or digging crankbaits.
