Hey Guys. Reelfoot big basin grooms pocket Green Island Area is one. Crappie 8 to 10 feet deep in 14 foot of water. Several limts caught in the past couple days.
All the other Basins seem to be really slow and water muddy still from the rains.

Reelfoot Lake Summertime Crappie Report on July 2nd 2011

Crappie a hitting great in the early mornings in the Lower Blue Basin Area of Reelfoot Lake - Moultrie Field and Bell Stumps area are good spot also.

You need to fish from about 5:00 am until 11:00 am this time of year - its the best

Cloudy days work best this time of year
