Went out yesterday and wade fished the south western bank. It looked perfect for spawning crappie. There is flooded vegetation out from the bank in 6-8fow and then all kinds of flooded brush right up on the bank in the 0-2fow range. Waded a long stretch of that bank, fishing both up shallow in the brush and out in the deeper brush. Only managed to catch 2 LMB and no crappie. I find it hard to believe that no crappie will or is spawning there so I'm gonna try it again. Don't know what the water temp was, hopefully they'll move in there when the water warms up mpre. It definitely looks like a crappie spawn haven so I will be going back.

Grapevine is one of the latest spawning lakes around. I will start looking in April.

Went north with my canoe. Caught 5 slabs in second laydown, then not a single bite for the next 1.5 hours. First time I fished in Grapevine.

I limited there today between 10-1. Fishing with jigs in 4 feet of water. Fish were about 1-2' deep. Guy beside me was doing the same on minnows. Out of around 40 we caught only one was under. Several big slabs caught by both of us. They were in that brush thick. All were caught in one spot

Think they're spawning in 4fow or staging to move shallower to spawn? I was mostly fishing in 1-2fow

I'll be on the vine tomorrow morning. Going for eater channels but I guess taking a few minners and a 10ft pole won't hurt a thing.

Staging if I had to guess but that would be a question for the pros which I am not!
