Is there a significance to the color of crappie eggs and do they correspond with with stage of the spawn they are in? I saw multiple different colors of eggs from one fish to the next today. Some were pale, some were super bright, and some in between.

My americanas lay green and blue eggs. I think they taste better than that brown and the white ones.

My boat looks like it was sprayed with cream corn after today.

You know the eggs are ready, when looks like that.

All females caught today were about done spawning. 18" to 24" deep btw.

Eggs at tawakoni I have seen in the past two days are no where near ready. Catfish, both blue and channel, have much better developed egg sacks.

Closer they get to spawning, the lighter color the eggs. Real close to spawning, eggs get translucent and separate.
