Fishing Notes

Today i got out about 9:30am. I went out with the intentions to catch a pile of Crappie! That didnt happen! I started in chimney cove with word that its been good fishing in there as of late, but i struggled in there. I was targeting the bank indentations like i have been, casting right up to the bank and slow rolling the slab buster bait with a 1/16 oz jig head with a small spinner on it back to the boat. I was able to catch two small ones using this method, but i expected more. I really think this cold front that came in really knocked some of these crappie off the bank. The water temp had dropped for 62-63 to 58-59. Sometimes these water temp changes really take a toll on fishing. After scratching my head trying to figure them out i decided to call it quits but on the way back in i decided to hit one more spot. I pulled into pog hollow there, which is right by the toll bridge. I found a curve or indentation in the bank inside a pocket. I threw to the bank and caught one right away!!! so i spun the boat around and caught 5 or 6 keepers in a matter of minutes!!! These crappie were tucked in this pocket and were protected by the wind. I really dont think the crappie like that strong wind. So i suggest on real windy days like yesterday find pockets that are not exposed to alot of wind. This should help you get more bites. These crappie i caught were also in the shadiest side of the pocket. They love being out of the sun as well.
