We fought 25 mile an hour north winds but loaded the boat with fat girls.
All,of them came from 20í of water on fallen timber.

Only 2 fish this morning, today was slow for us. The wind won, my dock had straight line winds for 2 days. It gets old, unless fish are biting.

No unders caught but a few thrown back. Pictures dont do justice. The small ones are 12". We landed several 2s and most had eggs


They hit every color and some minnows. No magic bait, but dark blues seemed favorable.


Next week should be great.

Good report thanks.

Not surprising, we got skunked. My wife did catch one yellow bass on a minnow, but that was all. We fished the far west end of Fork near Hwy 19 around noon, then moved to Coffee Creek this afternoon late. We did talk to another fisherman who said it was slow today, he had about 5 crappie, a catfish and a bass.

Saw where Garmin is releasing some new graphs and a 20 degree Livescope transducer for them. No black box needed.

I have a new place on Possum Kingdom, with a pier that is only about 6 ft deep at end. I’d like to try to put some structure out to attract crappie. Is that to shallow to work? Thanks

Only one way to find out!! If you can get them in the shade under the docks they will work even better!

My son and I caught 27 in 3 hours this afternoon on Palestine. All were keepers and most were big. All were thrown back.

First time I have ever been fishing and not busted out a bass rod for at least a little bit.

Fished for perch for an hour then busted out a bass rod. Caught one on the first cast and crappie fishing was put on the back burner.

Started out crappie fishing shallow this morning and couldnít catch anything but bass. Started bass fishing didnít catch anything. Started looking for brush piles in a new area of the lake for us. The 2nd pile we dropped on we pulled 7 big ones out real quick then they just quit. Looked around a little more then flipped bushes for about 30 minutes with nothing to show for it. Beautiful day on the water.

Default 2019 Crappie thread!!

Played around a little at the Marina on Somerville. Lots of folks catching in the boat slips but we showed up late. I broke off on a bass with a shiner under cork snd wife ended with one undersize crappie. Reports were near limits at night under lights. We cut out before the sun went down, so i didnt get a chance to try after dark. Several baskets had GIANT black crappie ready for the fish table.
