Default Big Crappie in the Little Miami???

Went today to one of my favorite smallmouth spots, a big eddy below a riffle and the place was infested with crappie. Caught quite a few nice ones on a 1/8 ounce jighead and 3 inch smoke metalflake grub fishing for bass. Including this guy over 13 inches and another just a bit smaller. Kind of surprising out of the river

I've been trying for the last few weeks at the lakes for crappie. Who would have known to try the river for them. Nice catch.

I have had that happen a couple times myself when fishing for bass on the LMR and also on the Stillwater. If you can find a school of them the action can be pretty consistent for a while. I have caught a dozen crappies in about 25 casts and then just as quickly as the action heats up they shut off again. Either I caught them all or the school moved on. Thats fishing for you!

That’s a nice looking crappie you got there.
I have limited experience on the LMR, I don’t hear many people mention catching crappie there. I catch them every once in a while in the GMR, not often enough to actually think about targeting them though.
I caught one similar to yours in a pond last month; I was using a wacky rigged senko. I’d been catching largemouth, I sure wasn’t expecting it to be a crappie.
Anyway, good catch!!

What a difference a year makes. On this date a year ago there were flood warnings all around here in one of the lousiest springs I can ever remember to fish the river...

I have caught a couple of crappie, and had a largemouth on in the LMR this year in slack water. It could be that the big wet last year flushed some of these guys downstream.

There are big crappie in almost every river, including the Ohio River, where I've caught some of the biggest crappie I've ever caught in Ohio. They tend to pull harder too, probably because of fighting current. Crappie on steroids!
