Spent a few hours crappie fishing at Possum Kingdom Saturday. Came home with the biggest cooler of black crappie ever at PK. I got 20 keepers and a couple sand bass. Only caught one dink that I had to through back. All caught on a white Gilmore Fuzz Bugg.

Water was so clear and still we could see the top of the school of crappie we were catching. They would swim by seemingly at a regular interval followed by three very big LM Bass. Water clarity is the best I've seen but it does make crappie fishing a challenge.

Very cool! That would be awesome seeing the school of fish you are trying to catch.

I caught about a dozen or so up a creek a month ago. I've never thought the crappie fishing was bad there. I know other people have historically said it sucked but I've always been able to catch some. Don't know if i've ever limited out though.

Great report. Good pic. Have booked marked that jig web site. Added it to the many others I already have booked marked.

Tom: I am pretty new to crappie fishing. When I sold the company in 2010 I took up fishing "full time" and have learned a lot. Looking back, I should have just fished with guides the first few years as it would have sped up my learning process.

Until I found these jigs I was not able to catch many of these crappie at Pk. I bet we have 25 feet or more visibility right now, as I can see a bunch of filleted sandbass on the bottom at the cliffs courtesy dock in 20 feet of water. This sure makes it tough to catch crappie as they get a real good look at your bait.

Not seeing the big schools of shad this year and that may be helping. When there is gobs of bait it really makes it tough.

Aggie: I am new to crappie fishing. I'm sure a "good " crappie fisherman would catch a lot more than I do. That said, a lot of the things people use in stained water lakes are not going to work at PK.

25' wow! Sounds like fishing in an aquarium, texoma used to get like that by the dam. Sounds like you need some fluorocarbon and maybe some live bait as a backup. Great cooler of fish.

Nice haul buddy, I love fishing stained water and try to as much as possible but I'm going to have to give pk a shot just to see this clear water and trying fishing it.

Mckinney: It's about to get that way. I never seen it this clear. In the past, I understand people used to scuba dive PK, but it was not clear enough the last few years. It getting like that now.

I'm always using fluorocarbon line but just as a leader. I put a barrel swivel on an 18 inch section and tie the jig on the end. I keep a bunch pre tied because 6 lb test fluorocarbon breaks pretty easy when you hang up.

TX_thump: I went scouting yesterday and found that some sort of fish are holding in large numbers under many of the shady docks. Probably a good place to start.

Good luck.

Was fishing the clear water up by the dam for LMB and ended up catching a nice crappie about 12 inches, ended up being dinner. Good evening of fishing, never ran all the way to the dam in a few years and was amazed at the clear water.

Crappie bite has died for me at Pk. Nice fish by the way. Looks like I am back to sand bass.

Glad to see your connecting Mike !
They are certainly there. Just getting them to bite is the tricky part at times lol.

My lines been dry for a few weeks but I'm hoping a lot of that changes in the VERY near future !!


Congrats my friend !

It's not all clear. Go up most of the creeks and it's stained. I caught several in water with a foot of visibility max. Sure if you run down the lake towards the dam it looks like bath water.
