My boy and I smashed them yesterday in about 10" of water. caught 115 in 3 hours, and kept the biggest 60. It was a lot of fun to catch fish like that with him. We usually don't catch anything when we go.

Nice.

Several if my buddies from my NWMCC days have been rippin lips all week. One fellas wife gets a 4lber on and the line breaks. Fortunately the fish landed in the boat. I'm heading up there Sunday pending a fishing report Saturday. Hopefully the weather won't screw em up too bad.

that's what i'm worried about. Cleveland has gotten 3" already and it's still raining good over that way. It's all headed to Jackson too.

My BEST year ever for crappie at Sardis. Every time the water was just about to fall and fish quit biting a rain would come and continue the rise. Right now the water has risen little over twenty feet since the start of decent fishing on the creek banks.

Still biting. More spread out, anywhere from two foot to 7-8 foot range where I'm catching them single poling

I thought about breaking out the crank baits. Hard when they are still biting in three foot of water though

They were pretty scattered, but we didn't throw many back maybe 20. Best area was from Toby down towards Clear crk. Caught em in 18 to 32 FOW. They were wearin out the clear crawfish. Black and pink did their thing as well.

300s from 60-100ft back, I bet 200s would be the ticket I just haven't ever bought any.
