We had a good weekend fishing here on Nimrod Lake, AR.:)

Here are some fish that some friends caught Sunday! They had 47 total between the three of them.
Here's Chad "ChadMan" Roberts showing off a couple nice slabs!

CrappieKeeper and I ended up with 81 for the weekend with about half being "dinks". We were fish hungry so we kept a lot of small ones this time.

Here's one CrappieKeeper caught this mornin'!:)

We found shad schooled 8 to 10 feet deep in 12 feet water just off of a creek channel drop.
We spiderigged with small bass minnows and "Bighead" jigs tipped with small minnows or Crappie Nibbles to catch 'em.:);)

We thought that this was a "monster crappie" until we got him up out of the brushpile!:(

What lake? Looks like you are sitting near the mouth of the cow pasture in West Sandy, Tn , but I know you aren't.

Nice catch.

Hey Tom, Our whole lake is only about 3500 acres at normal pool. Other than it's size it sounds a lot like Kentucky Lake. 5 to 10 foot flats 25 to 35 in the river channel.
Built as flood control in the 40's it was at it's peak in the 70's. A 2lber would hardly turn a head then. Lake Nimrod was considered one of the states top producers of "barn door" slabs.

Nice fish and looks like someone had a good feed bag on after it was over for the day.
