Well it took a long time but the water is about to cool off. Last week in Dead Lake the Crappie were on the brush tops, and really doing good on small red head jigs with white or pale green skirts, had a dozen in the large class. thanks and good fishing Merry Christmas to all

Welcome from Middle Tennessee. I'm a transplant from Central FL, used to fish the St. Johns around Deland. Water temps hovering around 50 here and I've had my best year ever recently. Good luck to you, check out Lake Woodruff when you get bored sometime.

We used to fish the St John's River up between Orlando and Cocoa. We would use Rat-L-Traps to troll for them. 10-4 on Woodruff. C2

The water temp in Crescent is was 63 this past weekend. The fish we caught had some roe in em but not much. Last year we caught em spawning in Mid January in Crescent but i think this year it will be about a month behind. This time last year the water temp was in the high 50's.

I have read posts and it seems advice from people outside the "click" is not appreciated.

I prefer not to be involved when people are getting threats from other members. I know the young man that was accused of over fishing and that was threatened to have law enforcement come to his home. I have fished with him and find him to be a nice young man. I have been a lurker for a while and have read his posts and seen everyone get offended over a simple disagreement on how to catch fish. I have been speck fishing for 30 years and he catches more than I. Maybe people should listen to what he has to say.
