    Iím not a seasoned fisherman and I may be completely wrong, but thinking about fish like that has helped me locate and understand what to look for on the water in muddy conditions.

    Thanks I agree. I had a couple things against my favor that day with water conditions not only muddy but the current was very strong along with the depth being 2 feet above full pool. Looking back I wish I had repacked my yak crossed the state line and put into another area I know thatís a little more set off the main river with a good amount of shootable docks. Thanks taking the time to reply.

    I was to the point where if it was past a little dingy I wouldnít go. I got some pointers from slab prowler and figured out it was possible to catch them in muddy water. I donít kill them but have caught a few. But then again I donít come close to killing them in perfect conditions.

    Sounds crazy but I start with BG pearl white. If no luck I go to a black/chartreuse crazy/curly tail slider. Canít think of the name but Iíve done ok with a BG thatís chartreuse with red flake. Tried something new today in pretty muddy and high water. A Charlie Brewer slider swirly bee. Probably gonna be where I start from now on. Black/chartreuse.

    I experiment with colors on muddy water and couple of my home lakes are always stained. I like the crappie magnet orange/chartreuse, blk/char crappie thunder, white/char, pearl/char. BG moglo colors are good too.

    guess point is keep going and try different things. Great ideas here on WHERE to try and fish around any structure you find. if up OVER your docks fish alongside is always good suggestion as it's still cover but then you need to find depth so vertical jigging is good.
    Thanks TBass89 thanked you for this post

    Thanks! Vertical jigging is a method I need to put to practice. Just need to train my mind into experimenting for testing different methods.

    Iíll look into that color put out by crappie magnet and give it a try. Thanks again be blessed! Tight lines

    Purple/chartreuse or Orange/chartreuse works fine in tubes or handties . Presentation is way more important than colors . Took a buddy on Tuesday and put it in their face with livescope . Held it on them in the dingy water . We caught 157 counting the short fish . Kept our limits and released plenty of nice ones .
