Hit Percy Priest at sunrise this morning and did some trolling for crappie. Action was really steady till about 9:30 am and then it shut down. Wound up with 17 keepers almost all in the 11-12 inch range with one that went 14 inches and a few shorts that got thrown back. Also one keeper largemouth at 17.5 inches that came home with me as well. Several yellow stripe that I let go.

All fish caught trolling on 300 series bandit in baby bass color in 14-17 foot of water at 1.7 mph. Lots of bait was in the area and as soon as you trolled over a bait ball, you almost always hooked up. I was fishing the Hurricane creek general area.

Here are a few from early in the morning. Good eating!

I have only started crappie fishing there since last spring and haven't caught any that I can recall. I have caught some big ones on Normandy before though.
