Mighty, I havent heard from you in a while. I wondered where you were. I was telling a few others that this past month or so has been my worst ever for crappie fishing. I have caught a few fish at crow creek. I think out of my last 3 trips I ended up with only 36 measuring fish all total. 16 one day 14 one day and only 6 my last day. I decided I wouldnt go again for a while. The last time I went was the day you called me. I take it you didnt do any good that day. I use to catch numerous numbers of fish this time of year, but the last couple years have been rough. One thing is the amount of pressure on the areas where we have been fishing. Never ever seen so many people fishing. The past few years when the fish were really biting, you had to take a number to get a good spot 24 hours a day. Heck you know me and you got there around 2 in the morning and someone was already where I wanted to be. I need to get off my butt and make some crappie condos and put them out where I can have some fishing holes without so much pressure. I have only had my boat for a year though so I have been mainly just fishing out of it. I have talked to several people in the area mighty and all have told me they are not catching any fish. I dont know what to tell you but to keep trying, surely they will eventually pick up a little.

I am a crappie fisherman from Missouri. I have some time to fish next week while my wife attends meetings in Huntsville. I could use some advise on where to fish from the bank. Guntersville, Wheeler, Tennessee River, or somewhere else? What lures or bait is best? Does anyone know anything about Madison County Lake? Thanks for any information you can provide.

I have caught a few (10-12)at Cotaco creek the last few times out and I've heard about a few good numbers at Limestone creek, But as you said when they're biting there's hardly a place to park the truck.

I'm not very familar with Guntersville, but I've heard in the last few days about some good fish under the bridges on rock ledges, if you can get a spot.:)
