View Full Version : Trophy Crappie join the mix in an Epic Spring time Bite

03-18-2009, 11:39 AM
Everything seems to be biting at the lake right now. As we speak the lake's resident Crappie population has gone on the chew. Numerous fish in the 2lb class are being landed on mini jigs, 2" Gulp minnow grubs, road runners even a boober and a mealworm are getting the slabs.
The most productive areas have been the weeds around the boat dock, woodys cove, the brushy parts of the west shore and the flats. Look for this bite to improve as the spring moves on.
Here are some examples of the Trophys that are being caught.
Here are the three better fish. Pictured are Pro Team member, and Crappie guru, Marlon Meade with the Martinez boys.
Please remeber that the females are moving up to spawn! So please let the bigger fish go to help out the future of our lake.
