We went after she got off work yesterday so only got an hour in and then this morning it was too cold so we went out at 9AM and came back at noon. Did pretty good and even fished a different spot today and actually I had never fish that spot before.

Thanks guys!

No cp, we have been using the same bait all week and that would be my self and my neighbor. He has fished more than I have because he took vacation after our trip out last Sunday when we had 50. He came back and got 50 with his dad on Tuesday and then broke his steering cable on his TM so got it fixed Wednesday. He got another 50 on Thursday with his dad and Friday with his wife they got 50. Since then it's slowed a little and he only got 8 yesterday morning, but I went back out with him late yesterday afternoon after cleaning my fish and we added a few more to his pile.

So between all of us and all the crappie they all were caught on 1/32 Oz. Roadrunners in Chart/Blue/chart with my little flash strips. I am going to try the secret ones soon, but just forgot once the action started with my favorite early spring bait.

Nice job, Skip! Rare thing for you to get time to go, I know it must feel great to get on them like that!!!

Thanks, No Doubt Sandwich Maker, I had a ball each time out even though I would have loved to fish more days this last week. So far I only had one female so the males just came in last weekend as far as I know. No spawning yet, think just looking for their places to make the beds. Who knows when they will actually start. However my neighbor said he some some guys casting right up to the back and reeling out and doing pretty good too. We long lined the whole time, both of us.

Last Sunday was probably one of my best days in 4 years with the drought and loss of Hydrilla was a killer. Plus with my boat stranded for over 1 1/2 years in it's sling didn't help much, LOL!

WoW nice! Gotta love Toledo Bend. Do you ever fish the Chicken Coop? It's amazing around this time.

02-10-2013, 01:08 PM
The funny thing is I have fished this lake since it opened and never been to the Chicken Coop, LOL! I know they catch a ton of crappie up there, but there are also a ton of boats when it's hot. If I can get these in Feb like this I can pass on the Coop in Jan. Have always heard about it though, but it's a pretty long ways from me as I fish about the bottom 15 miles of the lake.

They are excellent eating as we had a little fresh this weekend and for some reason it was the best fish I have had in a long time. Guess we used a well seasoned cornmeal type package of fish fry and I cooked them the right length of time all so make them really good!
