Default 2019 TBH Crappie Get Together!!!!

It's time again to start thinking about this year. This year we're gonna keep it the same timeframe as last year. Friday May 31st to Sunday June 2nd at scenic Lake Fork Texas. There's lots of places to stay there and plenty of places to eat. That time of year there will be 3 bridges on the lake holding fish in addition to brushpiles and laydowns and standing timber. It will be easier for some folks without good electronics to have more stuff to fish than just a bridge. Not to mention if you do fish any of those bridges that time of year you gonna get some crappie stolen by big green trashfish. It's pretty fun the first couple times it happen!! I'm staying on the W fork of the lake but fish both arms that time of year and Tawakoni is 15 miles down the road and a Great Lake for numbers of crappie but will never match Fork for size. Here's a couple teaser pics!

Maybe I can build the first 600HP outboard powered A/C crappie house with the floor cut out in the center? That would be a good build-n boat project!


I'll just have to figure out what to do about a tolling motor for it.

Lake fork Marina on the W fork would be a good one. They have hotel rooms and cabin style places. Burning stump also on the W side is good. Scenic 515 between the forks isn't bad and Minnow Bucket on the E side is nice. Lake fork Marina has rental RV as well as tent spots available. A bait and tackle store and a good restaurant.

That's fine for me. Hopefully you know how to catch crappie. I've never fished for them before. Also my boat is low sided, only around 5" tall. So if that scares you be warned. Lol
