Sounds like a good time to me on the local lake. There have been some really big crappie taken there recently. I talked to a guy who had 15 or so on a stringer, and the smallest was a tad over a pound. A few were 2 pounders. This lake has this type of crappie fishin in it, if you know where to look. I don't crappie fish at all now, but I could see why people do. Glad you guys got out. CATKING

Yeah EF doesn't get it's due recognition for crappie, but that's fine with me. I can drive two minutes and be on the lake there. The less people I have to compete with for slabs, the better :D You do have to fish it a little to find 'em. So many trees, it's tough to narrow down the productive ones. I went Wednesday evening for two and a half hours and between me and my dad boated 25 or so, we kept 14. All males. We caught some nice ones as far as length, but no fat females. I wouldn't think they've all dropped the eggs already. Only three fish on minnows. They were really hammering the jigs. Going back out this Wednesday evening, weather permitting.

Hey crappielooker- A few carp are probably spawning, but they haven't started in full yet at East Fork. They usually are not done until June, probably the 2nd week of June. The water is just now reaching the 60's ;) You are right about East Fork 's crappies SlabSlayer- I've seen some monster stringers here. But you have to fish this lake to learn it's secrets.

East Fork is near Batavia which is East of Cincinnati. Its a good haul from Wright State.

Basically, go to 275 E to 32 E follow that to Half Acre (I think) follow that till it dead ends. Make a left and visit the Boar's Head for bait. Turn right into the park and follow the signs for the ramp.
