Listen to the crickets chirp on this one! :pop:


White Tailer-- I'm new to MO and wasn't here for the crappie season last spring but we did get settled enough for me to make a few trips with the boat to Mark Twain throughout the summer. Every time we hit the lake we tried a different finger and never went home empty handed. A couple of times we limited with nice fish. I hope this helps a little, but I'll be watching with you for other "natives" to respond.

And heck even if they don't half the fun is finding them. Just drop me a line next time your lookin for a fishin partner and we'll do some exploring.

MT has my vote too.

Its been very good the last 5 yrs after folks put enough pressure on the corps of engineers to quit fiddling with the lake level.

:D CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP! :D

Sorry....I only know of one EXCELLENT crappie hole, and its a pond, and I was taken to it blind folded.....literally.

Only other fishing that I know is just 'good'. None better than the rest.

Water depth, structure, presentation, jig color.

Sorry WTer,

I can't TELL you secrets, I'm the SHOW kind, so you'll have to take me along when you find some good spots! HEHE!

No, seriously, the best lake that I've ever fished for crappie is Smithville, but I've fished it for 16 of my 25 years of life, so that's why its my favorite.

truman is my frist choice and marktwain is second

truman has some pretty good size water and that lake can get rough i mean really rough you have to have a boat that can handle it or pay alot of attention to the weather
we have a 17 ft deep v bottom boat and i have been on that lake at times i really really should have been loaded up and back on the road

Yeah, I'm still planning on it KC. I've got some things on my plate that may change that, but at this point, I'm ON!

My choices are...

(1) Truman (because I have had great success in both size and quantity)
(2) Stockton (because I know how to fish it and it USED to be great and may be again...real soon)
(3) Mark Twain (because it is close)

Thanks for all your Help. Last year because of the timing of the Move here i missed most of the spring Fishing.

i Fished a lot but mostly at the Lakes around Columbia, Little Dixie and i really like Finger Lakes SP just because no one goes there.

im going to spread my wings this year, Thomas Hill and Mark Twain. will also try Stockton and truman.

with the trout Fishing, i read that Cosmo Bethal lake in Columbia is stocked with trout, may have to do that before work in the Mornings.

There is a small public lake just outside of Salisbury that use to have the best crappie fishing that I had ever seen. About 3-4 years ago they dumped several truckloads of minnows in it and it hasn't been the same since.
