Fishing Notes

Well our buddy Stacey says that the fish are flat out scattered now that the crappie spawn is over. Stacey is a well rounded crappie fisherman who is very good at keeping up with the crappie. Recently about two days ago he went out and grinded to get what he got. Stacey notes that after the spawn they tend to scatter. He has been finding crappie about 12-20 foot down suspended over brush. The other day he found all his crappie in 6 mile cove. He also found some fish suspended in about 15 foot of water that weren’t related to brush. these fish were over 30 foot of water but suspended at 15. Stacey tells me that the closer to the dam he got seemed like the deeper the fish got. Swimming the Shadolicious bait along sides of docks that had brush and shade on it also put a few crappie in the box for him as well.
