Ken says: With this cooler weather the crappie realized it is fall and the crappie are on the move and they are feeding up for the winter. As of this report the water temps have hit the low 50's on the south end and high 40's on the north end. Lake level stands at 600.23 ft. which is a little over normal summer pool. Draw down starts around Dec. 15th and then the crappie will pull out to there normal winter areas. The fish we've been catching now are mostly from sand creek north to the Wilborn ramp. We have been tight lining jigs with our baby shad baits in all chartreuse or a blue back pearl belly in the 2 3/4 inch. Also we have been using a jig and a cork casting over shallow stumps and brush. We use a 1/16 oz. jig and a 2 inch tube for this presentation. On windy days we just tight line a 1/4 oz. jig and baby shad to control the bait better. Casting a cork and small jig in the wind can be frustrating to so the least. So if you what to catch some nice fish this fall and winter get out and enjoy some of this nice weather we have been having. Be safe out there and try to partner up for safety reasons and were your PFD's... Tight lines
the fall bite has finally arrived
