Going next weekend to our farm to catch more of these , we have a couple stock tanks with a bunch of them in there. We put ALOT of extra minnows in every year to keep them eating well, so we can eat well

In 2 days of fishing I never went across a single spot I was excited To turn around and fish after graphing it. On to Belton next month! Never been there before. Should be different!

We fished Corp piles on the main lake in 25/35'. They were loaded up last weekend. Ghost towns this weekend! Got home and got a picture of a limit from Palestine from 1.5' of water. Who knows.

Same here! We were catching them in 17' to 20' off of rocky ledges close to shallow water. Water temps are the same but fish are gone, we fished hard yesterday and did a lot of looking with graph up creeks and main lake but couldn't find them!

If they are that shallow on Toledo. Would you think they would be shallow on Rayburn?

I went to Rayburn last weekenod put in at Mill creek. It was my first time fishing there for crappie. Water was 64 to 65 in the back of the coves. I only caught one in 5ft of water but I was at a loss of where to go.

Going up a different creek in the morning. One I haven't been to in a while due to water level. It's got some deep holes if I can get back there, without tearing my prop up again .

Before that last rain, it was all day bite. Water temps were 56-58 before the rain. Kinda muddied up my water and brought levels up. But should be clear by now. Just hope I find something besides rocks.

One undersized crappie today. And that was it. Water was clear way up in the end of the creek. Visibility to 3.5 feet. And the very far end of one river at the same depth. But stained in the lake and the rest where the wind was blowing.
Prop ran good. Gained a little RPM too. Boat running more level at slower speed. He added a little more cup to my prop. But took off a fraction of pitch. Not sure if my MPH is the same as my batteries were dead on my hand held GPS. 4 hours run time on the motor. 2.5 gallons of gas. Fished from 7:30-3:30. Saw some big fish on the graph too. Just nothing biting in those areas.
