    Yep, I'm with 'Pappy'. To catch 2 lb+ crappie, you need to be at a lake that has several of them. Spent 30 years in KY fishing for them, caught maybe 5-10 over 2 pounds, then moved to SC, Santee Lake system. Was not a big deal to catch a 2+ crappie there, but was not easy. Best day I had there was 15 over 2 lbs. Basically I found them with gigs, but minnows seemed to catch the best ones. I just think the Southern lakes have a better 'growing' season and less early mortality of the Crappie. Man, Weiss Lake Alabama EVERY year get pounded with Crappie fishermen, but it still produces good numbers of good fish every year. Several Lakes in KY are great for crappie fishing, but 90% of them, you would hard pressed to produce a 2+lb crappie on a single fishing trip. I would guess Cumberland or KY lake would be your best shot if you are in KY.

    Never ever forget the local small ponds in search of big crappie
    The ones that folks don’t suspect or know have crappie in them typically have one or 2 monster fish in them

    First thing is to fish waters that hold 2 lb plus fish . Not all waters created equal .

    Just depends on the day, I always have something dark, something light/bright, and something dull


    What locations do you find them?
    Flats and edges of flats


    What depth do you find them?
    At or slightly above the thermocline.

    Wish I could. But since I can no longer launch a boat I am stuck at Joe Pool Lake.

    As many have said you have to fish where 2 pound crappie are at. Center Hill Lake produces a lot of 2 pound fish....albeit for the last 8 years they have been harder to find than they were slightly over a decade ago. The dam has been under repair for more than a decade. The water level of the lake has been kept at or around 630 during that time.....normal pool is 648. If you look at this pic where my son is standing it is now covered with trees.....when at normal pool the water will be in the trees you see behind him. Going to be a lot of cover for crappie......and everything else. Late spring it is going back to 648. According to TWRA the fishing will be on fire for the next 5 or so years with all the new cover.....which was actually old cover....LOL. I for one am very excited about this......the crappie are finally going to have some wood to relate to again....should be great.

    Joe Pool Lake in the DFW area has them, I just need to learn how to do a better job targeting. But I am now that Ketchn and Sk fishing with me I will soon do a better job at finding them.

    I need to do a better job of finding them due to a crappie tournament at Lynn Creek Marina that starts Friday. To win everyday will take a 2# crappie each day. And my goal is to win every day.
