    Default Magic 65

    65 is magic , 65 degree water that is , to better understand how the big circle of life is in these parts will help you have a clue where to be looking for crappie .
    Algae blooms that occur all over the lakes start to decline rapidly in cooler water , soon they become close to the bank in the shallows and thus draw in the shad , the crappie follow and this in turn narrows the window of where to be looking .
    65 is the prime number on the algae growth and or lack of . As stated in other threads and in several cases for me as well , some fish hang around shallow most of the year . Read an article done by a fisheries dept. that said there were basically 3 groups of fish in most lakes . Fish that roam open water most of their life , Fish that park in deep water most of their life and fish that live out their lives in shallow water .
    The article went on to name the species of interest and on the list was crappie . None the less ,some of the roamers and deep water fish will come to the bank during the year . The spawn and the fall are prime examples of numbers of fish close to the bank and large fish in that mix as well .
    Watch that water temp folks , under 65 ,you best peek at the spots you don't see many year round fish , the algae will be still blooming enough to attract bait shoals during the fall months in those rapidly warming areas of the lake.
