Crappie

The crappie are definitely in, but no one is talking about it. We got a few last night on micro worms we dug up for gills and jigging plastics because we didn't have minnows. Guys around us were getting them pretty good on bait though. The usual spots...

males move in at 50 C to 58 C water temp.( water temp is around 47 C now)
daylight hours will be between 13.2 to 14.6 hours.
The spawn starts at 61 C and peaks at 68 C to 72 C
Last year I found them on May 6th, and they hit hard on May 10th; I limited out in 35 min.
I have had many email's and text's from out of town people, the best advice I can give is be patient.
