Allatoona Weekly Crappie Fishing Report

Crappie fishing on Lake Allatoona in the month of June can be a great month to load the boat! If you have some brush piles marked, now is the time to check their activity. Target brush piles that are in at least 15' to 18' deep with a jig or a minnow and you should pick up a few nice Allatoona slabs this time of year! Not all brush piles are active you you may have to move around a bit. 

We are finding crappie on brush from one end of the lake to the other so there is no one specific location that is better than the other. The good thing is that the crappie seem to have spread out to where they will be for the next few months. It seems that by the end of May to mid June the crappie have settled into their brush pile homes for the summer. 

We fished a few days this week and we found brush that was in 14' of water and the top was in 6' of water and the crappie were suspending between 4' to 6' of water above that brush pile. We also found brush at 17' and crappie were suspended at 9' of water over the top of that brush. We managed a BIG white crappie off of this brush pile. The best pile was sitting in 18' of water and the crappie were suspended at 10'...we managed 14 crappie from this brush...but they were on the small side at 8 inches long. We managed 26 crappie with 10 solid keepers during our most productive outing. 

For the most part we are spider rigging minnows BUT...other Red Rooster team members are doing well casting to the brush and slowly reeling the Red Rooster Dagger back to the boat. There are some solid crappie being caught casting to brush...they are aggressive too! The best time to cast and reel to the brush seems to early in the morning...from sunrise to about 830. The Red Rooster Dagger in Pappy's Magic is catching some good crappie first thing in the morning. Lord willing the weather will cooperate and we will bring you another report next week!
