It’s amazing what a few days in the 70’s will do for fishing in the spring! The past 3 days have been outstanding fishing for Crappie. We’ve limited out each day early on Crappie and spent the rest of our day catching Yellow Bass and Largemouth Bass and just catching and releasing Crappie. Last year the 9th and 10th of March were also outstanding as you can see from the archived reports and pictures on my web site.
Notes on Action: There has been good action and a fairly easy bite lately with mostly smaller fish but a few big ones mixed in.
What to Use: Crank baits, rattle traps, jerk baits, and shakey jig are all productive.
Where to Fish: Shallow bars from the main lake to the backs of bays are a good bet on warmer days and deeper banks are best on colder days.
Notes on the Action: The past 3 days couldn’t have been any better.
What to Use: Tubes and curly tails in white, green or chartreuse fished on 1/16oz jigs has been very productive.
Where to Fish: Casting along rocky banks and points has been very productive. Shallow bars at the mouths of bays with some wood on them is a safe bet for good action.
IT’S TIME TO GO FISHING!
