Loc: Alvarado
Fished the lake about 5 times in the last couple weeks and the bite has been different every time. I haven't had a great trip for crappie yet but that's not to say I haven't had fun catching some nice crappie, catfish, bass and even some big perch on some light tackle. You just never know what your gonna catch when targeting crappie. I have mostly used minnows just because I dont mind takeing catfish home either but when the bobber bite is slow I would throw I roadrunner also. All trips combined I have caught about 12 nice crappie, only about 3 on roadrunners. Minnows have worked best for me. The crappie I have caught have been around 1-4ft of water but the last couple trips ive had trouble finding them shallow and I was starting to only catch small crappie so I decided to go deeper(spillway) and only caught one keeper there. Ive also worked the dam but i only caught some nice catfish and bass. Each trip I was able to catch at least 10 fish, some trips more, whether it be crappie, bass, catfish and perch so ive still had fun each trip! Hoped I helped and good luck out there!
