I'm thinking this next and it should be on. With warm nights in the forecast and full moon I'll be beating the shallows with the long pole. Anyone else doing the same? To be continued.....

I can guarantee that I will be checking some shallow spot come the end of next week. Like you said those warm nights back to back should really get the fish moving.

They're in the rivers now. Don't wait. They've been in the slack water next to current breaks for over a month. They've been feeding like they're starving. 80% of them are 13 to 15 inches. They bite just as good in 48 degree water.

None that have laid there eggs yet, but a lot that is sure ready. I have got on some good ones in 4-8 foot of water but have no idea what happens next.

With the mild winter we are having it is a very good chance the spawn will start earlier. Guessing next week. hmmm Been catching a lot of females with eggs. thumb

I'm headed out to lake placid in about 10 hours from now. Should know then whether or not they are spawning, since the spawn is the ONLY time I can catch crappie.

No shallow fish on the main lake yet, but been catching some shallow fish in the creeks.

Granger lake yesterday caught my first of year shallow, pitching a cork in a cove.
Only caught 1, but it was 13 inches and it nailed the jig in 2.5ft. of water.

That is the earliest I can remember for me to catch them.....

Water temp was 59.5.

That was the only bite.

Never fails people start getting antsy right about now, Keep a watch on water temps, this will dictate everything thumb
