Allatoona Weekly Crappie Fishing Report

The first couple days of the week started pretty good and then the wind kicked up for a couple of days which gave the crappie a nature break! We had opportunity to fish on Monday and we picked up pretty good numbers and a few slabs. We had several slab crappie in the 1.5 to 1.75 pound range that put up a good fight. We did have several bumps and short strikes that bounced the rod around just enough to get excited but the crappie wouldn't commit. The water is quickly turning from heavy stain to mild/light stain so it's time to start swapping colors. We targeted the mouths of creeks which is deep water between 20' - 25' and trolled 1/24th oz and 1/16th oz. jig heads as we saw singles and small schools suspended at 10' - 12' in deeper water. We were very productive in deeper water but if you stay in 15' to 25' of water trolling 1/24th and 1/16th oz jig heads at .7 to .9 mph, you should be able to put several nice keepers in the live well. Remember, if you find the depth of crappie and they stop biting...change colors! Now is the time to be on the water for fun and for filets!
