I like jigs with curly tails. Start white, chartreuse next, then go through a couple different colors. Then to standard jigs.

But when it's getting close to spawning time, I go a little bigger to a 2". When I feel they've seen my jig to much in the spring, I also use a 2" curly-tail grub. Black and Charturse tubes have always produced larger fish for me vs. other colors, for some reason. Not sure why. My grubs are usually white. And double for sandbass sometimes. You can also rig them with a float with 1-3ft leader during the spring. Cast it to a likely location. Let it sit for a moment, then real back really slow and stop letting the float settel. a short twitch and let it settel. Then move it a couple feet again. If you don't get a bite, real it in and try again, or select another target. I've used clear plastic floats for doing that too sometimes. It leaves less of a surface shadow. But causes more ripple in the water to draw attention.

Deeper fish, I cast and do a very slow retrieve. Or a pitch and let it fall keeping the slack out of my line. If it drapes over an underwater limb, I pull it over very gently. And usually get strikes on the fall just after.

Awesome thanks for the input! Went and got some different lead heads and tubes and grubs at academy. Going out tomorrow afternoon again.

So you guys don't use the lead heads with the spinner?

I don't. Others might. "I've" just not had enough success with spinner blades of any type.

Sandbass, on the other hand, are a different story. Especially in the summer and fall. And Rooster Tails in the spring in creeks and rivers.

Used to hammer whites on belton in college off rooster tails.

Have not gotten in many on Waco yet. And the ones we have were off minnows.

Going to fish the south bosque and jog creek tomorrow for crappie. Will try all the new setups and hopefully get lucky!

Been using spinning jig heads, and the tube bodies.

Constant pursuit outfitters thump chubbies in white hot, shadowboy, and JB special fished on 1/16oz or 1/8 oz pink or orange heads.

Thermocline lures little frys or tadpoles in natural Shad. Purple passion. And pearl ice on rhe same heads above. Russell gates makes great heads as does Jerry Leblanc.

Bonehead slim sticks in Palesrine special. Paradise. Bluegrass. And silver flake with a chart tail or white tail And black ans chartreuse.

That will get you started on plastics!! Then you will want some hand ties!!!

Left off copper mine from Thermocline Lures!! Had to beg him to make that color but after a few times getting whipped on if it finally made its way to the mold!!

Geez, busted *** jigging and minnows at every brush pile and stump south bosque to ridgewood, zero luck but two crappie. I think I have just lost the touch. At least got into some good sized whites right before dark! Would have had more but ran out of minnows!

I must say, those are some of the most "yeller", "black" and "white" crappie I've ever seen.

If any of you guys that are around Waco want to get together and fish let me know. Can hop on my boat or I can bring gas/beer/snacks/bait/etc.

I could use some pointers! I just want to be able to catch crappie! I work and live right next to Koehne park launch and can be on the water by 4 most days. And once summer hits I'm off for 3 months.

I usually winterize my boat about the first of June. And don't get it out again till Sept or later. To hot on the water for me in the summer. And I've had a couple irregular skin cells removed a couple times already, off my face. One was pretty deep and wide. Don't foreget your sunscreen. You can burn even when it's cool out. I got burned the first time this year back at the first of March. I'm gonna loose my ears one of these days.

Till I read the second half I thought you were crazy! Some of my favorite fishing is June to Sept!! I need to apply sunblock more often and maybe get some of those masks and gloves. I use a big patio Umbrella some in summer! It's 15 degrees cooler under that thing than it is in the sun! Had a buddy on here weld me up an H bracket to slip over the pedisdtal seat mount and slide the umbrella into.

I used to fish the summer when I was younger. Spent a lot of my time out in the sun all day riding a bicycle too. Sometimes 16 hour days in the saddle when I was in my 40s. Then I got my first Basil cell carcinoma a few years ago, maybe 2009?. All that time out in the sun before my 50th B-day started catching up with me. I remember my grandfather having it removed off his head, forearms, and hands. My dad has had it removed a few times now, and facial reconstruction twice. He grew up on Lake Worth. My Grandfather had the place till he passed in '99. My Pops sold it in 2008. My great grandfather bought it back in 1932. Being in the sun back then was just part of life, till we got older. I lost a co worker 4 years ago to the black cells. He was 47. It showed up on his back. By then, it was to late.

So, with that being said, were some sunscreen!

I do to most of the time JMAR, hat and soaking in sunscreen. If I catfish during the summer, it's usually at night. But I'd rather get them in April and May if I can.
Went cat-n around this past Thursday-Saturday. Blues and Channels were biting good, if you like smaller fish. People next to me had a bunch of 2-3lbs every time they ran lines. But they were using small baits and hooks. They had enough for a fish fry Saturday night and were expecting 20 or so people. I got most of my cut perch, live perch 1.5"-2.5", and shad stolen most of the time. Nothing of size worth keeping in my book. I pulled my jugs and left after lunch Saturday afternoon.


Edit: Sitting on a hill under a big live oak with a light south breeze overlooking my jugs for half mile is nice.

Where the red arrow starts is where they cut me from in a diamond shape pattern. Then pull the skin together. Unfortunately, they did not give me any prescriptions before I left. And it swelled up over the stitches, as you can see. Stitches are under the skin in the pic. I finally got antibiotics 4 days after. But it was almost to late by then. It hurt worse to get those stitches cut out than the surgery did because it was so tender. It was a guessing game as to where they were. So they just started hacking away. Try getting stitches cut out with out any locals.

This was the first one I had removed. I had some removed off my left temple the following year.

Y'all done any fishing? Hearing they've gone back a little deeper. I think I'll try the crappie condos on Waco next week.

I have a fish finder but it's old. Can't really tell if I'm going over a brush pile or a rock. Just depth and contour.

A newer graph with side imaging is well worth the investment! Hopefully have a new Solix 15 w mega imaging on the new slab sled eventually!!!

I've seen a helix 9 with SI for $800. That would be a great SI unit to get started with and would pt for itself quickly in time saved scouting and building brush.

Flex, The one I have is very basic. But I can tell a little when there are fish there. I think it's a Hummer 541 (in gray scale). It was about $140. I got it basically for depth. But have it fine tuned too. Took me a bit to get used to reading it.

Hummer10 with SI and GPS for foggy mornings, and a foot controlled troller are next on the list.

Man you ain't kidding. It's been too long since we had one, a year or so atleast. We used to back the boat in by the cooker in the back yard. Pull them out of the live well, filet em, batter em up and drop em in the fryer. Just that quick. Catfish too.
