As mentioned. It's a little too early. I was looking back at aome pictures in my phone today and it looks like last year we started catching them good in the creeks in late February. The best crappie fishing for us was in late May though in 2-3FOW in the main lake any where we could find rocks. They will spawn for a couple
Months. If your fishing a creek take minnows and fish the timber in 6 plus FOW under a cork. They will bite jigs as well but when I'm in search mode I use minnows. Once you find Them try a tandem set up if the brush is not too thick. Or just alternate. Focus on slow moving current in the deepest pools in the creeks.
