Got on the water around 12 and grabbed 8 before the rain set in around 4. Caught some stripe and bass as well but had 8 keepers out of 10 crappie.Got 3 at 14 inches or better!

Nice job. I went back Sunday morning (my sons slept in) and got into the crappie pretty good with most of a limit of big ones plus several white bass and a 5 pound rockfish. Trolling cranks is my new favorite crappie fishing technique.

Glad to here it. I found a good spot for some 14 inchers off an island point by accident. I will have to show it to ya. I been in the trees north of the smith spring swimming area for the last few weeks. They were in there heavy today in 15 foot. I would see them and then about time they got thru my sonar a rod would bend. Actually had two on at a time today. We got about two more weeks from what I understand. I would bet if I could get my fat bit up before day light I could really do well. I don't get out there till around 12 or one. I am sure my bite is slower then but I ain't fussing with 10 keepers every trip plus all the other fish we are hooking.

Oh yeah. If you have not got you a lure hound yet. I grabbed one from academy for like 6 bucks. It has already saved me about 25 bucks. It really helps when you hang up them 5 dollar crankbaits. It dives right down there and grabs them for ya.

I have been putting in at Jefferson Springs and trolling from about two miles before you get to the mouth of spring and fall creeks. I try to stay right on the edge of the river channel in 15 feet of water or so.
