    Well when you are retired and fishing is all you do itís not too difficult. I found that spot by chance using google maps. In the fall...and spring, it is not uncommon to catch a 100 crappie a day there. It is a spawning hi-way for crappie. I have stood in a spot there with 5 of us fishing shoulder to shoulder and all of us catch a crappie on nearly every cast. When my fishing buddies get their limit they beat feet...me....Iím subject to stay there the whole day. What is odd though in the winter...December-February....they are not there. As to getting bored catching fish.....that donít happen with me.

    If it keeps producing, I'd happily keep fishing it. Nothing wrong with looking for other spots too though. Your main spot isn't going anywhere.

    I'll bank fish right at ice out for about 3 weeks than the boat. If I find a spot that has fish I might fish it one day aweek but I will move to a different spot that mimics that spot and fish that. If I start to catch a lot of fish I move to another spot and try that. Don't like to get locked into one spot. Since the local lakes are small you might not fish out a spot but you sure as heck can hurt the population in that spot. If I was a one or two day a week fisherman I would set up camp on a spot but I fish to many days a year to be tied to one spot.

    I hit the same bank spots over and over and learn from every trip . that said I know that what is is and what was was and nothing lasts forever . many times from past experiences I know when and where is likely the best place to ketch crappie .so if a spot is good its likely only for a while . to be sure if you find them don't leave them until they depart . ketchn crappie is about finding them and once located you best stay after them because they will surely move to other locations before you get tired of ketchn them .
    so in the end I don't really have one spot I frequent and or a "best" spot .
    p.s. I keep a giant archive of crappie photos and use the embedded information to give me ideas on when and where I should possibly visit .

    we have boats but on my home lake rarely use them. have one public dock that everyone fishes not just me and it will produce or not. Nice thing is it's 5 minute drive from lake house and I know to dip certain spots around it, if bite is on you have a ball, when they arn't there go back to house to do chores, nap or have a cold beverage on deck. Come back in few hours and often a covey of crappie move in and it's go time. If that one is occupied can go hit other piers or along rocks where we know brush is and get em.

    Never get tired of hooking up with crappie of all sizes. The Thump is what we live for!

    We don't have a boat so it's bank fishing for us all the time unless we are invited by friends with a boat. And we are more into bluegill/sunfish but do very much enjoy crappie. Once we find a hot spot we fish it. Some are good most of the time,some only certain parts of the year. We rarely keep more than a few fish. While we search for new spots all the time we always go back to our known catching areas. And my boys and I never get tired of catching fish if about any size, especially on UL gear.

    I guess I'm awful prone to going back to spots that produce for me. What little crappie fishing I've done has all been out of a boat. But I found a couple good spots and hit them pretty much every time out. Catch a bunch then go looking for new spots. If I were fishing off the bank I think I'd be prone to keep returning to the same spot but not sure. I fish for small mouth in the river and walk a lot but I also will stand in one spot so long as I'm getting fish. I suspect the nature of man is not to quit on a spot that is producing till it quit's producing!

    I might be over thinking a little here. Even this same spot that I fish almost this whole year 3-4 times a week but only a couple hours each trip in the evening, the bite was not the same someday epic some skunked, sometime shallow some deep. I still have to figure where they are a lot of times and even that they might not be in a big group since they trend to spread out the whole area. I don’t fish under dock even I know they are there, reserved for the kids and new when I wanna show them how to catch and feel crappie tab, but I ll use that as indicator sometimes.
    I have a few different spots for bass, but I like this area the best since I can fish both crappie and bass. Lately though, I find more and more ppl come to this same area and kept every thing they catch (California don’t have size limit).

    The LOOKERS will change a spot for sure..... And one of the reasons I fish a bunch of small structure.....
    One; most won't put the time in to learn their graph to see it, two; won't put the work in to stay on it to fish it.....
    I usually fish a whole lot of the same stuff, if it's productive there's nice fish in the cooler but if not on to the next spot and repeat.....
    If it becomes a community hole more than likely it won't produce most of the time......
    REGARDLESS OF HOW MANLY YOU THINK YOU ARE WEARING A PFD CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE.....
