Here's a couple of suggestions:
Many of you have read my post about kayaking backwater areas for Crappie in the Huntsville/Lake Wheeler area of Alabama. Summer becomes a slow time for fishing with the extreme heat and low water. This is the usual time of year when I explore new areas. Generally if the area holds Crappie I can pick up a few and get an idea if it will be productive later in the fall.
I’m looking for new areas to explore either on public land or private (only if I can gain permission from the land owner). If you know of a slough, river, borrow pit, ect in the area and you’ve ever drive by it and wondered “I wonder if there’s any Crappie in there” please let me know. I usually post fishing reports to the Alabama forum, but will reframe and keep the results “secret” if requested. You can PM me the information and if I’m successful I’ll PM you a scouting report back!
Thank you for any and all information in advance!
Sending you that PM I told you I would.
Thanks, I've fished from the pumps to Swan Creek WMA, best Crappie fishing was in the Swan Creek WMA area. The two areas in Fox Creek look interesting. They will be even better this fall when they pull the lake down. The Crappie will continue to be in the creek feeding on baitfish long after the drawdown. That means hungry Crappie from the main lake and an area the "big boat"s won't be able to access much like North end of Limestone bay.
