Man that Lake is real special on the crappie. I have never even seen a live 3 pound crappie and their passing em around like dollar bills at the weigh-in!
Good luck Slew!

Don't know. Working today and tomorrow. Next day off is the 20th. But that could change on the 18th. Got an engine to put in my second vehicle when it gets done being built, and weekly domestic chores. Working 7 days week doesn't leave much time for anything domestic either.

I was able to get out for a few hours yesterday morning. I was determined to find some shallow, and I did but had to do some searching. All males in about 3' of water, so its gonna get real good in about a week or so if you like to fish skinny water. Lots of nice green fish on the same flats.

Thanks! Hope I can too. I did get to get out on the water last Sunday afternoon for some fins. It was sure nice! First time since last day of Duck season . Didn't get to deer hunt any this year. But did get to duck hunt 6 mornings total.

They only pay 2 places on big fish so there's no telling how many didn't get weighted in! Not to mention teams that had multiple 3 pounders! I knew the stars were lining up right for it this year. Unbelievable lake! We'll be back in May for the ACT and probably go every year in March from now on!

Makes Fork and Pines crappie looks small! I can't imagine how folks up North where 9-10" fish are good feel! I could use those for bait down there!

Lynn brought his buddy Robert over to LOP for a little fishing and a lot of livescope training.
Lynn has his own boat and equipment but still comes over a couple of times a year to fish with me.
We had my best day of the year. There were fish everywhere we stopped and they were willing to bite. They went home will a cooler full and we threw back about as many.
We caught a dozen big sand bass that passed by as well.
We fished from 6 foot deep to 30.
We caught them all on Huckaee meat dragger rods with hand tied purple and black jigs.
As they used to say in the newspaper, a good time was had by all

They are spread out last I heard. Some are still deep on structure. Some are shallow getting ready to spawn.

Fished shallow on pines Monday and found some scattered here and there in the buck brush, but I think they are just being to move up. all we could get them to take were minnows. We saw multiple fish with their backs sticking out of the water, but they would not touch a bait.

I'm hoping to get out this afternoon or tomorrow for a slab journey. My brother has been catching 7 to 15 per trip in the shallows most being 13 to 15 inches. Hopefully I can get some. Will report back with photos if we find them.

Got my new livescope mount installed today.

I forgot to take a pic with the handle in. Has both options to move with trolling motor for chasing open water fish or can un-sync while using spot lock. The handle is a twist to rotate too (instead of swinging arm).

Got after em' on Granger today. Found very few shallow, but found big piles of them staged in 14 to 20 feet. Kinda scratching my head over that. I guess the front and colder nights are to blame. Bass crashed the party again as well. I've heard some people actually fish for those things on purpose??

I fed two doz minners to the crappie yesterday in about 3.5 hours counting travel time. Even caught a few on dead ones. To bad all but two were dinks. Only caught 2 or 3 on jigs. They wouldn't have anything to do with a jig all day. I did hook one big striper that pulled loose from the gold Aberdeen. When I ran out of minners, I went after the sandies with jigs. Caught a bunch of small males barely legal that went back in. Also kept a few small males. And kept 3 big females that had spawned out. Didn't get on the water till about noon. Headed back to the ramp abut 6ish, 13 miles from where I put in with my small Jon and 25hp.

Something isn't right with my Livescope, I think it's electrical interference. I need to look everything over and see what I can figure out. I've got lots of clutter on the screen and I've tried lots of different settings.

I saw the big fish was 3 lbs plus by a junior angler!
