Toledo Bend Crappie Fishing

Reply
This past weekend was a great weekend to catch bass and sacalait. We fished Sunday, catching 46, fishing brush piles in 20-25ft of water, for about 3 hours. We could clearly see the piles stacked with crappie, and the low front had them biting. At certain points, we were able to get them feeding on a frenzy, catching 5-6, then it would turn on. We got on the water at 8am and set out fishing our piles we made. We typically rig 1/32oz jig heads with a crimp weight above the jig to fall quicker, however, some of the crappie would hit the Slim Jimmy while swimming it across the brush. Bleu Glo and Black/Chartreuse colors worked well. On some piles, they fed on shad more so we threw Salt N Pepper colors at that point. Tubes also worked to get a few bites. Overall it was a good Father's Day weekend. The Slim Jimmy's can be found at Toledo Tackle. Enjoy the video!

Some nice sacs there. When you say, ' you could clearly see the piles stacked with crappie', do you mean on your electronics are with your eyes? Just curious. Thanks for the video. Got a buddy that has been hammering them on the bend too.

@huntnut, Yes we can see them on our graph. In Down Imagine on our Humminbird we can see what part of the pile they like to pile up on. Usually we only catch them in a 2ft by 2ft square strike zone due to how vertical they can get. See image below
