Fall Sacalait Fishing on Toledo Bend

Reply
This past Saturday we took an afternoon trip on the water for some big Toledo Slabs. This is one of my favorite times to fish for crappie, due to how heavy they are feeding. We are fishing brush piles along main creek channels in 20-25ft of water. We used plenty of minnows to fill the chest with meat, but the quality slabs came on artificial lures. Cajun Lures Slim Jimmy in Salt n Pepper color is what did the trick for us, as it a close color to match shad and minnows. The crappie feed heavily on shad and minnows along the creek channels. 1/32oz jig heads with 1/4 crimp weights 8' above the bait did the trick. Enjoy the video to see how we caught them!

Very nice sac au lait.I live in Mandeville and know a few folks adept at sac au lait fishing on the T-Funky,all I seem to catch deep-jigging is logs and debris on de bottom but do target chunky bass and might alter my tactics to include some deep-water jigging for sac au lait.Going tomorrow with our canoe and hope to nab a few slabs!!!
