    My father-in-law was there yesterday also and struck out. Were you marking fish? If so, what depth(s) What baits and methods did you try?

  7. I am heading to Alum tomorrow so I hope I can find them. Like Shake said some will be very shallow. I looked at my little book that I make comments in and I show that last year I was out on the water about the same time catching Crappie in shallow water. I will let you know how I did on Friday.

  9. I went last thursday to alum and me and a buddy got about 35 crappies only 13 were keepers.Got on jigs and minnios in about 6 to 12 foot of water off points and drop offs with slip boppers.They should move shallow this week with the water temp going up.I will be on the water first thing tomorrow.
     
  10. Me and a buddy went out to Alum Creek last evening just on the north side of cheshire road. Caught about a dozen crappie (nothing to brag about) with about a 3-4 foot lead and minnows. The crappie seemed to be fairly aggressive, hope it stays this way with a few warm days ahead of us and a full moon coming soon. Does anyone know how the boat docks are for catching crappie? any input is much appreciated, thanks
