Went out Monday with long time customer Jonathan Carter. Fishing was a little tougher today but we managed to catch around 55 keeper crappie. Jigs produced all the action. The Bobby Garland shad worked well and also caught some on 1/24 oz. chartruese halflies. The depths of the crappie are still the same at 5-25 […]

Fishing this week has been fantastic for crappie. I fished a half day yesterday with customer Earl and Trip Moore. We caught around 80 crappie. Our fish all hit tube jigs at 2-15 foot. depths. This action will continue on through to February. Water temps are still holding around 49-50 degrees which is perfect for […]

Crappie fishing last week was excellent with some of the largest fish  boated that Ive seen all year. We boated around 100 fish on each outing. All our fish came on crappie tubes fished at 5-20 foot depths. Excellent fishing should continue on into April as all the patterns are about a month behind with […]

Fished today with Mike Kemp from North Georgia Brick. We hit the lake around 11:00 a.m. and fished to about 5:30 p.m. At the end of the day we had boated around 79 crappie. Action was better later in the afternoon as the water temperature gradually warmed. The warmest water we saw was 46.5 . Tiny […]

Crappie fishing today was excellent. I had a half day charter with good buddy Dr. Ash. On a 5 hr. charter we boated 77 crappie. All our fish hit tube jigs on 1/32 ounce lead heads. Most of the crappie today seemed to be holding around 12 ft. deep. I thought conditions might be tough after […]

Went out today for a few hours to check the action on the crappie after yesterday’s warm up. We boated around 45 in just a few hours which is not bad.  All our fish came on 1/32 ounce tube jigs fished  anywhere from 3-20 ft. deep. I think  the  action during the next few weeks will really […]

Good fishing is just around the corner. About a 2-4 degree rise in water temperature should kick off the fish into a feeding frenzy. Usually in years past when we had severe cold winters the fish go crazy when the weather finally does break. I had a die hard customer that wanted to try for […]

We managed to land around 60 crappie on tube jigs fished at 5-30 depths. Our largest fish was near a pound and a half. […]

Went out on a recon mission today to check crappie activity. We boated around 15 crappie. Action is still a little slow. We need another few days of sunshine to get water temps to climb just a little.  There is still ice over sections of the lake if you go north of  Clarks Bridge. The upper […]
