There are a lot more boats using these lake this year now that we can use our gasoline outboard motors at idle speeds on the lakes Last weekend it was hard to find a parking spot for the truck and boat trailer. LOL Fishing is still pretty good for crappie though. Crappie are spawning today. Water temp at 4 to 8 ft deep is 64 deg F, perfect for the crappie spawn. Male crappie are wearing their dark spawning colors. White Male Crappie ( 5-6 Dorsal Spines) are wearing their dark spawning colors and are looking like the Black Crappie species but these are male white crappie.
