Yesterday morning , around 4:30 am,I was sitting in front of my pc looking at the web app for Ray Hub.After a cup or two, I marked a few culverts off road beds and creek beds up on the N side of the hwy 66 bridge and made WPs on my unit and went out to investigate before the BIG H2o event.I fish several pilling along the bridge in 12-15 FOW and only managed to jig up one small LM bass & one real nice Sandbass which were both released before directing my attention to the roadbeds and culverts I had marked.To my amazement, everone of the culverts (4) had fish on them!They were very nice arches & I could not get a single bite!I tried everything.I don`t know what species they were but they were not interested in my offerings.Sorry no screen shots this time but I will try and get some next trip after the H2o stops falling and the Good Lord agrees with me.Has anyone on the forum had any experience fishing the north side of Hwy 66 bridge roadbeds,Culverts,sub bridges,flooded timber etc for Crappie this time of year?I ran into Mr. Slabradore Retriever at the ramp on my way off the lake just before the waters fell.It was a nice meeting.

Haven't fished it for crappie but I fished it for white bass. Hmmm maybe those arches were some big cats?? Just a guess.

This is my first year to crappie fish. So please consider the source when evaluating the value of this. Having said that, I have fished for crappie only this year and only on Ray Hubbard. I started as soon a the 66 ramp was usable back in the Spring and have fished most every weekend at least once and usually twice. Since I was launching there that is where I fished.

Others may have, but I have never done well in that timber. I can usually pick up a few fish off the bridge but very few on the timber north of it. When the weather warmed the boat traffic in that area got heavy. Then they started dumping Lavon and the Trinity was literally running through that area for days. So to avoid both I moved to the West side north of 30. I still made a few trips up there but the results were the same.

I've been able to catch crappie in places all over that lake at one time or another. But that danged timber up there is still kicking my butt.
Fishing is hard. It's harder if you're stupid.

Most defined arches on fishfinders today are catfish, their boney heads give more of a return when the sonar bounces off it.cother fish just show up at a half arch or just a line
