Caught 13 this evening from about 5 till dark. Caught maybe 10 short fish as well. Most were on brush in 8-10 ft, but some were on a 5 ft deep pile, and three keepers were up in 2 ft. Mostly small fish up shallow. They definitely wanted black and chartreuse, and nibbles. They were biting pretty soft, not whacking it good. I did catch this one that was 15 inches, the biggest crappie I've caught on Phantom. Lake record is 2.7 something pounds and 15 3/4 inches. This one was a little smaller than that, but still a whopper in my book.

There are a few piles still. The main one was one I put in last winter.

Great fish. This freeze we are about to get will set the shallow fishing back a few days. I took the second week of April off and dedicated it to crappie fishing Phantom. Black/chart is what I have had the best luck on also.

Young cat, there are brush piles all over the lake.

That's a great fish! Thanks for the post, reminds me that I've been looking too shallow for them and just need to back off and fish a few feet deeper.

We caught almost all our fish in 2-4' of water. We didnt have a great day but we did put fish in the boat. That honey hole place is cool but it does get very crowded and makes it tough sometimes.
