    Default Wondering

    why some spots some days is tough as heck and another spot or even the same one a week later is a slab festival .
    I wish I had more time to scout them out and to be sure I know a few spots I bet they are biting well at .
    so I would say this about that , if you aint on fish move around some as my bud Sk often preaches .
    you will find fish with or without a boat if you look for them frequently and in numerous locations .
    tip of the week yawl .is this .

    Yes if your fishing brush pile, better have a lot of them in several depths of water. I also find right after the spawn they will hang in 20' of water on brush, but once it get hotter they move out of there and into 25' to 35' water depth. If your lucky enough to have some docks with good water depth they can be great all summer long, we just don't have many near me like that so brush piles and standing timber would be the best here. Standing timber early can find some in more shallow water like even 10' - 15' water depth, but as soon as the sun starts popping they move.

    Admit I have not bank fished in so many years I know 0 on that, but as a kid I always caught fish in a small lake on the golf course and lots of them. It had some Cypress trees next to the bridge crossing the lake and we did catch crappie there and I am sure that was not all that deep of water at that spot. I would be surprised if that water was over 5' deep right there and if I found and Cypress near the bank or where I could get my bait next them them, I would. I also think Willows on the bank hold a lot of fish and some bottoms fall of deeper fast.

    Just did not figure it would be so tough. I can now see if they are on the brush but sometimes you could put a hundred dollar bill in the minnows mouth and they still will not bite.

    Well, head hanging, doing the definition of insanity. Doing the same thing expecting a different result <smile>. Guess we will start fishing some deep docks, or something.

    Dhaire some free advice.
    Not that I know anything, but I have observed some things.
    One time in particular we were fishing standing timber, a little ways away from the channel.
    Trees were covered in fish, tried 2 hours no bites.
    Moved 1/8 mile from that spot and closer to the channel, fished brushpiles
    Had our limit in 30.
    It seems to me, fish closer to channel are more actively feeding.
    Further away they are loafing or sleeping.
    Keep swinging til something works.

    I think this hot time of year, crappie are more finicky and less aggressive. Two weeks ago, my friend P.R. and I went on a Thursday and caught 25........told my cousin about our trip and he and his friend went two days later on Saturday and caught 5. Then last Thursday, my dad and I went and caught 30 and we went back today on Tuesday and caught 2. All the same brush piles using the same jigs. No weather or water change. Water temp 86 degrees.

    I started thinking it was a time of day issue at some point long ago. One study in particular where I really wanted to bust the pattern, I went 5 long days of a week on my vacation and fished the same places on the same lake. Morning, afternoon, and night. Most of the places had plenty of fish every day. Some points in the day they would be gone at a few locations, and return later. The same fish would feed or ignore at different times on each day. You might get a few takers, a skunk, or a limit at each one depending. Only two groups of fish would bite good at the same time of day in those 5 days. And it wasn't everyday either. Every other location was completely random.

    I wanted to tie the behavior to baitfish somehow, but when there were baitfish around the school on the screen there still wasn't a concrete pattern there either. Sometimes they were on, sometimes dead off again. Through that week, and other times, I came to a theory that they were just feeding advantageously. Regardless of the time of day. Sometimes you pull up on em before or during that period, and sometimes after. I say theory because I never could prove it to be an actual conclusion.

    I like to really dig into things like that. But either way, there were fish caught in every situation by moving around like they're saying. Learn multiple spots, and/or make multiple spots. You'll put fish in the boat. If for some reason you don't, at least you have a boat . One other thing on making spots....if you frequent COE lakes, they want to know all about your pile/condo and the exact coordinates if you run it by them as per their wishes or just get caught not running it by them. Buy a camping spot, sneak in the materials or at least what you need from elsewhere, build on site after the park closes or keep an eye out, and sink em. Old school.

    You mean there are folks who actually pay attention to that crazy rule? wow, just put em out when no one around or after dark. It's easier to ask for forgiveness that their permission when everyone will know of your pile.
