Hit the lake with Mike at 7 am yesterday. Decided to go where I have never been before and see what was out there.

Same story. 18 ft is the magic number. It really does not matter where we go as long as long as u find structure in that depth. If you power fish- spending no more than 2-3 mins, fishing everything you see or know, you should limit. We hit standing timber 14 ft-22 ft, Brush piles, and rock piles in 15-26 ft. Most of the fish were 1-5 ft off the bottom. Black/chart on 1/16 th oz was the choice, as always. I would post some cool side scan pics, but my boat is not here to pull the pics up. Next report, I'll post some up.

To get a better understanding of Side Imaging, you can read a blog I wrote with some pics to explain at the images.

I scan everything before I drop the trolling motor, to make sure there are fish there. Even if  I have have a honey hole, I scan it first. I scanned a spot yesterday I fish a lot, and I had to stop the screen. It had more crappie on it than I have ever seen before. Over 50 were boated in this one spot with 31 keepers. In less than an hour.  The structure was one single tree in 18 ft of water. So what I'm saying is, scan it before you fish and decide if the amout of fish at the targeted structure, is actually worth your time. I don't stop unless I see more than 15. If you don't get bit within 3 minutes,  go to a new spot. Sometimes minnows out fish jigs, sometimes jigs out fish minnows (90% of the time jigs rule the water).

Stupid East Wind.... Fish bite the least when it's blowing out of the East. WHATEVER!






Above is what y'all need for the tourney this weekend on Lavon. 14-15 inchers. (7) 14 inchers and you will be in the top 10 I would think.

Started the day out meeting the one and only "Dutch", as we all call him, at the lake. He wanted to learn how to use his side scan and actually catch fish on Lady Lavon. Didn't take him very long to figure it out. I had him follow me around the lake and mark stuff and had him go venture out and find the fish on his own. He did very well..... Dutch and His son were landing tons of fish at every stop. Caught well over 100 fish today. Dutch and his son were using jigs and I would back them up and send down a minnow. Sometimes they would hook more than I would. But in other spots, minnows dominated. Fishing was at it's peak at 830 am. Slow in the early morning, due to they are still out hunting. As the sun comes up, they find the closest structure to sit on for the day.

Again though, 14-20 ft of water. Today the pattern was 2 cranks off the bottom pretty much everywhere. Black and chart Thump Buddies were the ticket. I did however, see Dutch catch multiple fish on diff colors and combos. Every time I looked over at him, he had a new color on. Lol...

After we got done and the heat got to them, I went out before this storm hit and got my limit before the rain got there by 15-20 mins.

Thanks again Carey for a Great Day on the water. We both learned a lot. Color doesn't matter, except when it does.

Forgot on the water and after pics. But here is Marcus with a huge bag of crappie.



He loves fish.



Had a good day this morning. East wind was annoying again, but some monsters were getting yanked out....... No pattern change.


14 yr olds can do it.






Dads can do it too!
