Fished JPP Saturday Morning. Almost stayed at home after looking at the sky and the lake levels. I am glad I didn’t. We had a great day ending with a dozen good crappies, Still caught a ton of short fish, 2 nice catfish and a couple hybrid bass.
Crappies went very shallow with this high water and were feeding actively on juvenile shad. They preferred baits that mimicked the shad in color, rather than the orange and Chartreuse that had been working the week prior.
I am sure this pattern wont last as they are pulling the lake pretty fast so the fishing could get tough for a couple days.
