Fall Sacalait Fishing

The weather is beginning to cool off and the water temperature is dropping. This signals the shad to start moving around. This is a great period on Toledo Bend to fish for sacalait (crappie). Fishing brush tops in the 15-25ft range water depth are key. The sacalait are filling up on shad, minnows, and small fry. We throw the Slim Jimmy in Salt N Pepper color this time of year because of the shad/minnow resemblance. The fish are not as big as the spring time but you can still catch a good number of them. Fish the Slim Jimmy on a 1/32oz or 1/16oz jig head for best results. Hold your rod and let the tail 'dance.' Just make sure you have enough room in your ice chest!
