It seems on the lake I fish the brush pile fish have vacated for the summer so I called and audible and headed to the submerged trees near the river channel, which I’ve never done, it’s a forest. What I learned was the crappie were in the biggest trees that had a horizontal limb. I couldn’t imagine fishing the way I did today without livescope and being successful, it sure does help! I also learned that a floro leader was mandatory as straight braid wouldn’t get touched. I probably caught 50+ but kept the first 25. All on jigs about 15-18 ft down on trees that were in 28-35 ft. Also, tried out a new bonehead 10 ft. and ACC 11 ft., both pretty good but the edge goes to the ACC.

If those are from Choke, my hats off to you. I fished Choke a couple of weeks ago and we only caught four keepers in two days. A friend has an Rv just before you go in at Callaham. He has put out a lot of brush and we kept thinking they would be on some of em. Sometimes being stubborn can come back to bite you.

Round 2, another limit although the size was much smaller. Another lesson I learned was that the fish don’t set up in the trees very well until after 11:00. I guess once the sun gets high they tuck in the shade of the limbs.
