Well the good news is the crappie will bite even in the cold. The bad news is the river is still very high and muddy in places. Today we ventured out to the lake and managed to scratch out enough for supper before the coffee ran out. The bites were scarce but, when you did get bit it was a quality fish. We fished the B’n”M Capps and Coleman double minnow rigs but, we replaced the bottom hook with a Charlie Brewers Crappie Slider in Grass Hopper Green. The fish were suspended at 17 feet over deep brush piles. The lake has dropped to 43, that may explain why it was a “one here and one there” type day. It is cold and there is a little more current than I like but all in all it was a great day.
