Allatoona Weekly Crappie Fishing Report

The crappie bite on Allatoona is slowly coming back around! After a lackluster March and most of April, this last week or two of April is picking up. Allatoona is clearing up nicely but there are still some debris floating out on the main lake so keep your eyes peeled and where your life jackets. 

The water clarity is clear to light stain with visibility in the 2' - 4' range...use natural/translucent colors (Blue Glimmer, UV Shad, Splatter Back, Gray Ghost, Watermelon, Motor Oil Red, Mayfly...etc.) to mimic the small baitfish during this time of year. If you are unsure what jig colors to use in clear to lightly stained water we have combo packs available to help get you started. 

We caught crappie anywhere from 4' in shallow cuts around wood or cover to 14' over the tops of brush piles. The crappie will be moving to the shallow brush piles first for the better part of May, then deeper brush end of May to June time frame. Spider Rigging with jigs or live minnows is a great way to catch them this time of year. Lord willing the weather will cooperate and we will bring you another report next week!
