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?

No, but I went to percy priest yesterday, and put in at the us army corps of engineers ramp... And it got too windy for my little boat.
Good judgment comes from experience, alot of that comes from bad judgment.

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.
