Report: June 27, 2004 We made it out on the lake at about 12:30 PM. The sky was very overcast and the wind was at about 15 mph which made the water very choppy. After checking two of my spots with slow results, we decided to move into the protected areas along the bluff banks and in the inner edges of the creeks. I was using the shad Assassin and David H. was using the crawdad/chartreuse Squirming Squirts again. After searching around the log jams and stumps we got on a pattern. Just about every stick up we cast to had at least one or two big Crappie and several small ones. It took a lot longer today to get a limit of 10-12 inchers, and David only managed 8 keepers. I think that the season and the pattern have finally caught up with us and they are moving out of the 11-14 ft water now. Most of the keepers we caught were in about 21 ft and they were very hard to come by today. The front that moved in from the West didn't help a thing as the wind was coming in from the North and East.

Report: June 25, 2004 This trip I took my old friend Delbert C. with me to pay him back for helping me fix my fence. We arrived on the lake at about 12:30 PM and proceeded to the areas I have been catching fish. The bite was slower than it had been but we caught several fish that would keep up to about 3:00 PM and then moved to another area that I had caught fish in earlier in the Summer. The Crappie were again right up on the banks just as the week before. You had to cast right to the edge of the water and then hold on. They were laying up there waiting for the minnows to come out of the rocks and crevices and they were realy blasting the jigs. We fished later today and finished out with two limits out of about 70 Crappie, and Delbert kept about 40 big hand sized Bluegills. A very good day on the lake.

Report: June 23,2004 I fished pretty much the same areas as the previous trip with about the same success rate. I arrived at the lake at about 11:00AM and fished with tube jigs and the Assassins for most of the day. On this trip I boated 40 or 50 Crappie and ended up culling 30 keepers down to a limit of 15 big SLABS. I was a little hampered by the two 18 year old ladys that I had taken out as they had not fished since they were 10 or 11 years old. I spent most of my time getting them unhooked from the brush and re-tying on their jigs. All in all we had a very good day on the lake. The boat traffic and crazy tuber's were not much of a problem.

Report: Sunday June 19, 2004 the Crappie had moved out from the banks during the heat of the day suspending in 11-14 ft of water. I caught three limits of keepers during the early afternoon and was culling down to a limit of BIG slabs by 3:30 PM. In the late afternoon the crappie had moved into the shady areas along the steep banks with brush and bluff banks with timber. Most of the fish I caught were on 1/32 oz jig heads with either a pan sized Shad Assasin or Crawdad colored Squirming Squirts. I allowed the lures to slowly fall into the deeper water and the fish were attacking them on the fall. Late in the day they moved up on the banks at the edge of the water chasing small 1 1/2 in. shad minnows and I caught some really good slabs that way.
