Default Lake Palestine Crappie?

TBH crew-- I'm headed to Lake Palestine with the wife for a mini-vacation before our baby boy shows up later this month. We got an air bnb right on the lake for a few days next week.

I've been given the green light to fill a cooler with fish. I plan to fish at the house but I wouldn't mind getting out in a boat.

Would appreciate any recommendations for someone who runs half day morning trips out there and if it's anyone on TBH- Id be looking for this coming Tues or Wed morning specifically.

Thanks!!

I live and guide on Palestine. If you need advice, give me a call 972-310-4461. You can catch them shallow or staging to spawn. It will depend on how you're rigged up to fish.

Water temp is 43 degrees, are y’all pulling our leg saying they are already shallow? I figured they wouldn’t be shallow for another couple weeks after that ice storm.

Todd Froebie (slew on TBH), Clay Gann, or Mark Standrige (3 Nails Guide Service) would be the ones to talk to I would think. There are a lot of guides out there if they are booked but I don’t know them.

Call mark with 3N guide service. It’s not 43 degrees way back in the shallows.

Surface temp was 54 today. They had 15.27 on their best 7 on my scale. Probably 16 pounds on a certified scale. Crappie fishing never gets old off to Grenada next week!

I appreciate the kind words Todd. I've been in touch with him trying to get him on some fish. Good luck at Grenada!!

Did you fish today? The lake looked like you could surf on it when I drove across it late this morning!

Sorry for the delay guys!! Got back and headed to work the last two nights.

Had a great trip with a few rough patches!! Our first airBNB was a bust— it was lakefront but they had done the oven “auto clean” and smoked the place up pretty good on accident. Pregnant wife was not having it. Luckily the owner was able to refund us. But- short notice with two dogs in tow was tough to find a lakeside spot. Ended up just east of Tyler.

We were able to see some friends, ate some great food and I linked up with a buddy in Lindale to do some pond fishing and catch some nice bass. Planned to head to Palestine and hit some recommended bank spots that afternoon.

My GSP had other plans and got himself bit by a cottonmouth!! He came trotting back with it dead, hanging from his mouth and a set of fang marks on his snout. Must have been a dry bite because there was only some minor swelling by the bite site and he had no reaction whatsoever. Gave him some Benadryl and made him lay on the porch (tough task for a GSP). No symptoms or sore affects whatsoever and that was 3 days ago. No signs of infection at the site either, feelin like we got lucky.
