Despite it being 19 degrees this morning, I decided to head out to Smith Springs this am. Needed to reward myself after working 7 days in a row. I've heard people say that there's decent crappie fishing in the multiple coves from the ramp onward towards the Anderson Rd ramp.

Water temp was still 45-47 degrees. I tried trolling 1/8, 1/16, and 1/32 oz jigs with no luck. I jigged and fished minnows with slip floats on submerged structure in 12 to 20 feet of water with no luck. Not even a single nibble all day.

Does anyone here ever fish in this area? Any suggested spots?

I used to bank fish that area back when I lived in Antioch. It doesn't seem to really heat up until April.

I tried again today with no luck. The wind was just brutal. I too have a very small boat (Bantam 3X) therefore I didnt last long. Water temp has dropped a few(43-45 degrees). I'll wait and try that area again in the spring.
