  • White Crappie
    Description:  
    Caught all these up at the conservation dam. All of the crappie are over 12 inches. Important information: The Shad hatch in Lake leon is like nothing I have ever seen. throw a net anywhere in the lake and you will get 100 to 200 two inch long Shad for each cast. This means there should be a crappie explosion next year.
    Bait:  
    Shad and jigs.
  • White Crappie
    Description:  
    Caught this 13.5 incher up at the conservation dam. Biggest crappie I have caught in years. I caught several more in the 12 to 13 range, all on the same color jig (the only color they would hit). The water was still dirty frim the rains and they were biting like minnows, but if you could feel them and react fast enough, you got rewarded with a slab!
    Bait:  
    1/8oz Eagle Claw Yellow -Black -Yellow wooly jig.
