I 💯 agree! Summer and winter are better. Spring spawn there are too many people out there trying to catch them. I like the quite.

My buddy and myself were talking about that last night we both hate fishing the spawn.

I agree with OP totally. The spawn also correlates with super windy weather in Texas so the fish are scattered and the wind makes it even tougher.

So.....is anyone catching them on a post spawn pattern yet? I'm ready!

My favorite time to fish for them crappie is the shallow bite from 6 inches to foot and a half and I can’t get enough as it’s starting to be slimmer on the limits. !!

PS The boat docks are putting out some numbers too somewhere at your nearest lakes. Go get em !!

Haven’t been on a good jig bite in at least week and a half. Today found them in 12” of water on brush wading! Crazy good bite in wind protected cove.

I found what I thought were post spawn fish stacked up on a brush pile last weekend. Was the only pile with significant amounts of fish and they were pre spawn fish! On top of that gale forces winds made it difficult to stay on it. Shouldn’t be long until there are some full brush piles, I’d guess another 2-3 weeks.

Stick and move stick and move still finding them in creeks with ok numbers mainly on brush in middle , some still on banks and on docks!! Been slaying since end of feb !!. Look for brush tops etc put the time in you will catch if not none on one bank we find a ton on another that’s usually the shady bank. Shade is the ticket even on docks !! It’s prime time !!! Good luck !!

Wind and late season cold fronts have made this year a challenge.

It seems i catch the biggest crappie on brush piles in the fall, September and October.

Wife said I can’t keep anymore crappie, too many in the freezer already……lol.


The first 5 days after the Weekend are the Hardest.

Personally I hate spring time crappie fishing. Everyday is a challenge, wind, cold fronts etc.

I prefer anytime else of the year. I usually fish my slip in spring. Have been doing real well there until this week.

Well if I am fishing I am not mowing or cutting limbs down, painting or whatever else the wife wants done. I get up and go before she gets out of bed and leave my phone in the truck. I LOVE spring time fishing!
