And only fished 2 hours I'm told!! Local guy that built several brushpiles when the lake was 20' several years back. We found a couple of his he said! Was good seeing new faces at a tourney. I'm gonna miss one aug 31st and Sept 7th. Next one on my plate is Lake Hamilton and then back to Fork for Texas State Championship then 2 on Pines and a month off before we start back up again!!

I went Sunday and caught 25 for myself.
First time in a while I wasn’t running a trip and got to fish myself.
Caught most of them 12 to 15 foot on down tree tops

Just don't over do it...at the office. And don't hurt your self there. Cause we need an occasional fishing report once in a while.

The fish are biting, and there's hogs to be kilt. Gotta go!

Drove down to the ramp at Buck Creek (Ray Roberts) yesterday. Sure wished I could have fished instead of a meeting in Sherman.

We cleaned 30 this morning on Fork! First time chasing crappie w Livescope for the guy with me. He caught on towards the end! Had several fish around 1.5 but no good ones today. Burger and chocolate icebox pie was on time though! McDonald's gang can have Fork the rest of the week! I'm going to Palestine this weekend!

Picked up my grandson Ivan this afternoon to go fishing with me in the morning. We got home and decided we should hit the lake for a couple of hours just to look for some places to fish in the morning.
Down timber in 12 to 15 foot of water was the ticket. We decided we would quit at 25 so we could get home before dark but he caught one more while I was packing up the boat to leave.
I was using the same old purple and yellow 1/8 oz Nedkid tackle jig. He was pitching a red jig with a purple head.
They wanted it moving so we were pitching across the tops and swimming it back.
I expect to hammer them in the morning.
This boy loves to fish almost as much hunting.

I would have just quit and went home.
I had my grandson with me this morning and we wanted to fish standing timber looking for big white crappie. The wind was 15 miles an hour gusting to 20. The waves made boat control tough. The wind made feeling the bite almost impossible.
At 10:00 we had 5 big crappie to show for the beating we were taking, I would have just called it a day. My grandson is one of those”just one more cast” kind of kids so we moved to brush piles in 15 foot of water, just to get out of the wind. We boat 20 black crappie by noon and headed home.
Nothing is better than being grandpa.
I was using a purple and yellow bumble bee jig. Ivan was using a red jig with a purple head.

Ok guys. Real question. Looking for advice. Have a decent boat. Just put a Lowrance Elite 9 ti2 on it. So now have sidescan. Went to Conroe this morning. Went to a couple of brush piles, and found a new one. Ended up with one bite, no fish. Using minnows. Dropped about 10ft down and waited a bit. Then dropped 2 more feet and so on.

What am I do8ng wrong. We used to catch them ok on Conroe, but never great. Dont know what else I should do.

Maybe its time to give up on conroe for crappie? Or is it me?

Conroe seems like it is pretty good for crappie late spring and early summer. For a lake that is 75% bulkheaded just not alot of places for the to spawn and have sustainable numbers any more. Travel down the road to Rayburn. Pretty easy to find brushpiles and the 147 bridge always has fish.
