Should be a tad bit early for the fall crappie bite,but the gills should co-operate.If fishing from the boat it should be better odds,if not there is always good food & beverage at the pizza cottage:p

Shot shallow docks and toons tonight. The bluegills (big ones) were cooperating but only one keeper crappie a lil over 11 inches. Don't use shad color, too many of em, try something that will stick out and get there attention.
Good luck,

I've caught so many crappie the past 3 weeks at that lake that it's getting boring.. Every cast I caught a crappie.. Have a freezer full now. Just got to know what to use.. I think I found the perfect bait.

Hi Kyle. This is my very first post here.

Could you tell me what you mean when you say you "Shot shallow docks and toons tonight." Thanks.

Also, if it isn't too much trouble, what did you catch the bluegills and crappies on? Colored jigs, like little tubes and such? Did you use a bobber? :F Thanks.:D

Hey, Ethan. That sounds pretty dang good.

Seeing as how this is my second ever post on this here forum maybe you would feel sorry for me, me being such a dang dummy and all, and tell me what your perfect crappie bait is. Maybe not. :D

Okay maybe not EVERY cast.. But pretty dang close.. Screw grubs are the best bait i've ever used by far and I have only known about them for about 2 months now.

hey the dock shooting . i just got that new line nanofil by berkley little out there price but really goes far and cant see in water and the fish cant either. like braid line but not. is real good if just starting shooting goes real far. Good luck and dont catch them all save alittle for us down on st marys. lake is not too bad but i have been really sick and have not been able to get out. My illness has nothing to do with lake. lake looks and fishes good just love buckeye lake.

Shooting docks and pontoons. Also known as sling shoting. You take a small jig only and light line with a bendy crappie pole, any size but Ultra light action is best. Now you have ur jig reeled to the first eye above the reel and take it and pull it down to the reel so there is a full bend in the pole. Have a finger on the line, aim right infront of your target and let go and the jig flys to it and skips on the water back in this case under pontoons and docks in shallow water. Just type in dock shooting on youtube. I use a green wassopah jig by crappie pro.

Ripley-- Stop by Bobs Outdoor Supply in Newark{on Union St.} and check out his supply of screw grubs. You won't be sorry. I agree with ethanf163, they are great. Earlier pics of blugill, on this site, this spring were on screw grubs. Friend was useing wax worms, and I was killing him. Both in size and numbers. Also great for crappie. This spring was the first time I had heard about them. I've been back several times to pick up different colors. Rumor has it, the bait store on Rt. 146 near Dillon Dam has them also. Good luck, I think you'll like them.
