The first part of April has seen its fair share of bad weather for fishermen to deal with. With several cold fronts, coupled with low water, it has made fishing tough for many anglers. We have had several warm days as of late which have brought fish of many species to shallow water.
Crappie anglers are using several techniques to catch fish from spider rigging, long lining, and even casting a cork and minnow. Several crappie have spawned, but there are still several that haven’t. This week we have seen fish caught anywhere from 2 feet of water to 8 feet of water. Most of the deeper fish were right on structure, either stumps or man-made brush piles.
