Fishing here in West Texas has been crazy...Before this last front I caught males in 3' water, and sows in 42' water... After 4 days of 30 degree weather it is going to be interesting. Maybe the ladies were smarter then the gentlemen.

Do you think all the males moved back to the deep water during the cold front?

No, they will move a little deeper, but only until they find the temp. they prefer. With the unseasonably warm weather we have been experiencing they are approx. 3 to 4 weeks ahead of schedual here. Normaly they get busy around easter and the full moon. This colder weather will probably put them more on schedual. Also we should have at least one more cold spell. One thing we can count on, they will spawn...To me the hunt is as much fun as the harvest!

Make It Count!!! <><

Crappie Jig "Wolf"

Who's online

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
