Any opinions on how they will bite by Friday with all the new water? Also heard they were letting it out. Thx.

We got 50 yesterday! 28-32 feet. We fished in open water around points. No minnows. Only Jigs. Thermocline Black Emerald Shiner. Remember you have to keep everything on Fork until March 1st. While we had our fair share of small ones we caught some HOGS too. We dip the tails in Chartreuse Spike it. Crappie really love it.

Good Luck.

Thx HOGON, doesn't sound like the water level has any effect on them right now. More like they are settling into their winter pattern. Were they starting to group up? Thx again.

We just trolled around bouncing the jig off the bottom. It seems you would pop it a couple times and then THUMP! They really like to hit it when it is falling back down. Other times you would just hold it still and then when you least expected it THUMP! It did take us all day to get our limit but we spent first part of day just trying to figure them out. At least for us the new water did not seem to affect the bite and we had a North Wind too.

We caught fish on the 515 West Bridge. Not sure about 515 East we did not fish it.
The 154 was holding 4-6 inch small fish. Big fish were few.
The majority of our big boys we caught in open water 28-32 Feet around points.

Friday could be completely different. But just reporting where we found them.

Good Luck!!
