Found a limit in an unlikely place today #12366366

Today is my last official day of summer. Summer band practices start tomorrow. So, I decided to go to Lake Timpson, a completely random and pretty unfamiliar lake, to do a little bass/crappie fishing. I've only fished there maybe 3 times and never for crappie. It's only 223 acres and VERY shallow pretty much everywhere. Average depth is 8 ft.

After getting SKUNKED bass fishing for the first couple hours, I decided to go scanning for crappie. Found some good looking timber, but no fish on it. Kept going and came across this beauty....




This pic was actually taken after I had gotten my limit and caught probably 40-50 fish total off of it. As you can see, it's still loaded with fish.

They were suspended no more that 6-7 ft deep and slamming a chartreuse and white jig that txmedic had made for me. Not a single white crappie was caught! Water temp was 87 degrees and wind was out of the....north? At the end of July? Yup.

All you need is corn meal and oil now! Glad you found my brush pile. Was going to give you coordinates, but with your expertise I knew you would find it! lol


All fishermen are legends in their own minds! Ranger Boats, Yamaha Outboards, Humminbird Electronics,Motor guide, and all the tackle in the world.

You did good!

Your going to have to teach me some trash fishing skills. They weren't cooperating this morning!
