Yes, but hard to target, don't know why. I have caught large ones trolling, 3 pounds not uncommon.

Thanx for the info fisher jack. I tried targeting them jigging the 277 bridge collums not one bite. Frustrating!

Maybe since there's not a lot of brush they become nomads and just roam around all the time???

I don't fish for them, I'm just guessing.

If you have seasonal open water crappie experience
If you have electronics
If you can read what you see
You can find good fishing year round on the clear water in south Texas.
Weekend for last we were there for a ditch pickle show down among'st the metro gringo's
After 6hrs we were 3 short of a two man limit on slabs and my metro gringo buddy won the tournament slamming ditch pickles.
We managed 9 crappie over 17" and one was almost 19 full inch's
Everything else was 14-16",all came on 1/4oz Roadrunner head 4" baits in at least 15-25 FOW

I've never targeted them but caught several on crankbaits down there. Caught the biggest one I've ever caught on a DD22 banging it off deep trees.

Just another slab that got processed and consumed the same day
I dont do trophy accolades,when you target big fish species for decades it just happens
I throw 4" baits from Feb-May here in Texas and find above average eaters every year for my efforts
Yah gotta feed'em what they eat if you want drag strippers. . . . . .

My grandson of 13 did real good most of the day cranking rapala and several others
I rigged him Carolina and he dug up some real nice ones bouncing the short lip baits.
Its a very good lake and very clear
It pretty well sorts out who can fish and who can catch no doubt

So you caught more than ten fish bigger than the current lake record for white and black crappie? I call BS!
