    If you are not sitting a tree you might want to get down to LOZ and shoot some docks. [​IMG]

    Once I get my fill of deer hunting, the crappie will be my #1 priority.

    I guess bigbass wasn’t yanking our chains after all. :D

    Me and a buddy fished from 1-dark yesterday. I know I caught around three limits of keepers just by myself. The average size was very good as well as most were over 10” with several in the 11-12” range. Once you found them in the graph, the key to getting bit was shooting that jig way up under the dock 10-15’. The fish were only down a foot or two and usually bit within a handle turn or two.

    They were catching quite a few crappie below the dam Saturday morning while I was there, but most looked pretty small. Soon to be sold in a chinese restaurant near you.
    We caught a mixed bag of pretty much everything on jigs and jerkbaits.
