Default 2023 crappie thread!!!

Well the years started our great for me but not for fishing!! I was supposed to get after them today but my FIL took a turn for the worse and momma went up to be with him so Iíve been playing Mr Mom. They should be bunched up deep this time of year on most lakes! Plan on getting after em next week and tourney season cranks up the 21st in Texas for us and nationally Feb 3-4th! Got a few more ducks of geese to kill before then and then the slabs better hide!!

The strong cold front over Christmas weekend finally got them to go deep and school up. I've been finding them suspended 8 to 10 feet deep on 20 to 25 feet of water, that's about as deep as you can find where I fish. Mostly on deep creek bends with no cover, but rather around shad, which means you have to deal with a lot of white bass as well. They sure like Slater's jigs as well

Iíve already started catching them in creeks in 5 ft of water. Granted, we were near a 15 foot edge, but they were shallow and gorging on shad. Wife put two absolute units in the boat today and one managed to escape the fish basket !!!




Oh yea, ran into a pile of these guys too

My kid went chasing them last week up a creek and blanked. Small ditch pickles. Couple more weeks and I'll give them a go

I tried both in the creek last saturday. Minnows were the only thing the crappie wanted, and ditch pickles as well.
We were sitting in 8 ft of water, throwing to 5 ft and the bait was on slip corks 18-24Ē deep.

Thanks I've never tried fishing for them in creeks but I have a pretty good idea of a place that should hold a few once they head towards them.

We donít want bass fillets!!

First day out of 2023 and it was tough! Havenít been on LOP in a while but they managed 20. Big fish but numbers sucked. They had a gallon and a 1/4 bag full of fillets with 20 crappie though. Thatís some slabs. Taking the kiddos deer hunting this weekend and then get back after the slabs. Had my hands full the last few months.

Crappie Cakes

Bring water and two tablespoons of old bay seasoning to a boil

Boil 1 to 1.5 lbs of crappie meat for 3 minutes (refrigerate for at least an hour if possible). Crappie should be white and falling apart.

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard

2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley optional

1/2 Cup Chopped Green onion

1/2 Cup panko Bread Crumbs

Preheat the broiler.

In a large bowl, combine the egg yolk, salt, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire, green onion, mayonnaise, and parsley. Then, gently fold in meat (be careful not to break up the lumps, here you will be adding in the CHILLED crappie). Sprinkle on bread crumbs and lightly mix. Shape into cakes and broil for 5 minutes (or air fry). Or sautee in pan with butter or olive oil. Sometimes make them silver dollar sized for apps. Feeds 3 to 5 adults.

ONCE YOU TRY THIS A FEW TIMES, IT'S EASIER TO MAKE. BOILING THE FISH THE DAY BEFORE CUTS THE WORK IN HALF. ADJUST THE INGRIDENTS TO YOUR TASTE. ADD OR OMIT ANYTHING YOU LIKE.

As the days get longer the fish know its time to do their thing and they head that direction. In my area they usually spawn in waves from March through May often tied to the full moon. That said I'm the wrong person to be chiming in about spawning crappie! I hate fishing the spawn!

I agree, fish WHENEVER you can. I haven't been fishing since before Thanksgiving last year. Then both my boys and I got the Flu. I just had a mild relapse, I assume the prescription didn't knock mine completely out. Hopefully the steroid the doc gave me will. I feel good enough that I hope to give it a try tomorrow or Sunday. Hopefully the wind will cooperate.

Nice work Buff!







I'm still try-n ti figure out where the hole is for the corn to go into the livescope. I'ma guess-n it goes through the cable. And is dispensed through the transducy thing under the boat? And this is what makes the crappie come? SMH!

Anyone care to help a fly fisher out with Crappie and bass around central Texas? I have a canoe, and a lot of experience catching everything BUT crappie and white bass. If I want to hit a creek and put some fish on a stringer do I need to wait for some warmer weather? More water in the creeks? I'm assuming they're like lake/sea run trout, that move once the spawn is close, or when the water comes up?

And if it's pre spawn, what habitat should I target? Got a rule of thumb on minimum water depth? Focus on brush? None of the above?

Don't fish the lakes as i don't have a boat. But my crappie at the farm are going to be better this year than any other. We have 4 lakes that I have stocked with Black Crappie 5 years ago. 3 times a year I put 20 pounds of minnows in each pond along with some small bluegill. a couple weeks ago I went out and jigged some form the bank and caught 10 in 15 minutes. they were right at or over a pound. My biggest one is 2 pounds and I caught several just under. Its been fun trying to keep the numbers up while letting them grow.
