    Default Bad year for Crappie?


    long time lurker here. I went out kayak fishing in a local lake for post spawn crappie. Caught bunch of geezers but strange thing is that they all have the eggs but look dull color or withered. It was at really high ratio of such female crappies among the catches. Fishing 5' of 8' water in brush piles, water tempt at 83, lure color: Lime-A Nator

    Indication of bad years for crappie fishing for this lake? What do you gurus think about this?

    Females will re absorb eggs after spawn. Not unusual for females to hold in same area.

    I may be mistaken but I believe that crappie donít necessarily lay all their eggs and they get reabsorbed as ripinlips said.
    If you go to the Missouri main forum, there is a spot to ďAsk the biologist ď T that may be a better place to check.
