Love this little lake but I can’t catch a keeper to save my life. Caught 63 last week and 71 today. Out of those 134 crappie only 10 keepers. What gives?

Minnows. To be fair I don’t think the big fish have moved deep yet. The few keepers we caught had some eggs in them

Growth stunted crappie from Lake W'ford are the norm. No-one can explain it . The ratio of fish caught to keepers is about 10%. We have always had better luck with keepers when using shad from the bubbles and not minnows ! In addition, moving with the bait on the graph outproduced spot lock measurably .
