You can catch huge crappie under the bridge, but like all other fish out of Monticello, their meat smells like mud. This is because of the algae in the lake that the bait fish feed in smells like decomposing moss. Bait fish feed in it, predators eat the bait fish and thus they all have that horrible smell and taste in their meat. The water has been cold for over a year now, so eadibility may have increased. But to truly answer y I ur question, yes it is full of crappie, I just don't recommend eating them.
