The plan for today was to show up at 7:30am and catch 50 spawning crappie in shallow water by 8am, eat a second breakfast on the way home and take a nap. grin Well, that didnt pan out. Within the first 5 minutes I had caught a small male on jig/bobber. We thought we were on the right track. Did not catch another fish for an hour. Water temp was 62 and rising. Went and tried brush piles in 14-16 FOW. Caught only a couple on 3 piles. Things were not going well. Went into a small cove and caught 3 short crappie in a little ditch in the mouth of the cove. Frustrated, we went back to the first spot we caught the shallow male.

BOOM! Dang, it was a yellow bass. Then a crappie. Then another yellow bass, then another small crappie. Then for about 2 hours, we went back and forth across the sanev100 yard stretch and caught yellow bass nonstop. After throwing 15 or so back, I told my father in law that Ive heard they were good to eat. Then we started keeping them. Wound up with 32 yellow bass, 3 bluegill, and 2 crappie.

Great! How do you know a yellow bass from a white bass? the yellow belly?

One 10-pounder is better than ten 1-pounders; but 100 1-pounders is ok too!

From TPWD:

Although yellow bass are sometimes confused with white bass or young striped bass, there are several distinguishing characteristics. First, the belly may take on a yellow color, from which the species derives its common name. Second, unlike other temperate bass, the two lowermost stripes are distinctively broken just posterior to the middle. Also, the second and third anal spines are approximately equal in length

Nice! Fished half day on out 90 acre lake from the bank. Tried all the usual hot spots. Not a single crappie yet.

They are great eating. The texture of a white bass with the flavor of a crappie.
