A couple weeks ago I was catching male crappie on beds in 5-10 feet of water on PK. Most had Cormorant marks on them but they have to put up with the birds every year. After two bad cold fronts I'm now catching them under deep water docks again. I'm watching a hard North wind bringing in another cold front and I am not sure that these fish will spawn this year.

Sand Bass have also been absent. The places that should be wall to wall with them only have a carp and a few LM Bass. It's been a weird year for sure.

I would guess we've had one spawn here on Sandlin. The bite was good two weeks ago, then they backed off. If another wave is coming, we'll probably start seeing them shallow in 5-10 days.

I think the spawn last longer than most people do and all the fish don’t spawn at the same time, just my thoughts

It’s not even that late. Mid April/early May is not unusual at all. They’ll be shallow. Patience.

It's running roughly a month late in general. Water in the upper 50s in dfw is very strange for mid April. Every year there are fish that will not spawn and will re absorb their eggs. The ones that do make up the difference.

No but they will move back out to their pre spawn hangouts.

I have been catching spawners for a while...only cleaned one female that has completely spawned out over the last three months...of course, I haven’t fished deep structure yet, which is where most females go after spawning. DW Moore could probably provide a report on spawned out females on deeper brush...
