Saturday 5/11 crappies..........bite was definitely better than Thursday. Fished off and on during the day, estimated 3.5-4 hours total. Caught 61 crappies total with 37 at keeper length or better. About 10 of those were 11"+ but none cracked the 12" mark. Wood was the most productive for both numbers and size. Two fish were white crappies which are sparse at GLSM. Also caught 12-15 gills and the highlight was a fish that was unknown until I netted it. It was a brute (doesn't take much to be a brute on the flyrod I use for crappies). For 4-5 minutes it went where it wanted when it wanted.....was a channel cat in the 3.5-4 pound range.
My son and his nephew fished a couple hours as well and managed 35-40 crappies. They were both fishing curly tailed grubs (colors were chartreuse or a combo which included chartreuse). All my fish came on a Lindy Watsit grub in a combination chartreuse green/chartreuse yellow). The cat and bluegills also liked the Watsit. For the most part we fished 18" deep or less in 2-3' of water. Water temp was 64 degrees.
Lot of bass boats in my channel Saturday. A 2-person crappie boat fished a an island in my channel for 3-solid hours. They kept 60 from a total of 102 caught.
