I added some fresh cut, big cedar trees under the boathouse late last summer and it looks like they are starting to pay off.

Water was 58-60 degrees in the afternoon. I caught 6 crappie off of the boathouse yesterday afternoon, 12" to 14" size on Texas Toast Slab Bandits. I don't think they are ready to spawn just moving shallow & feeding on shad in preparation.

They were 5' deep in 6' of water. Males were not black yet and females were fat & healthy but not bulging with eggs.

So don't think it's too early to fish shallow.
I thought I wanted a career! Turns out I just wanted pay checks!

Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

It's about to get right.
The driving force and secret desire of every bass fisherman, is to one day be a crappie fisherman............Could it be that the good Lord just smilies and looks the other way when a fisherman tells a lie?
