Crappie thread 2023


Senior Member
Last year there was a thread people were adding catches to, figured I’d start up one for this year.

We went out for the first time today. Fished 3 hours before we had enough of the cold (we were under dressed and forgot gloves). Expected to find fish in 25-30’, but majority we caught were in 16’-18’. Boated around 45 fish (3 largemouth) and only 15 of the crappie were big enough to filet. Water temp was 50* and stained.941A2000-F8C1-4E21-9BA7-C402F9C2305D.jpeg817567D7-3052-4D07-87B3-8F568DD9474B.jpeg9A969566-9BE1-4AF1-BF07-45EE9CA7F0BA.jpeg136280E0-EBC8-410A-BEA4-1C1FA724B4CC.jpeg

Here's a couple of 2 pounders from Seminole. We call them by their true name down here. Speckled perch. It won't be long till they move into the lily pads to spawn.

Fished solo for about 4 hours yesterday. My favorite trolling spot had 3 boats in it when I got there (never seen anyone else trolling for crappie there) so I went in search of other fish. Picked up 1 or 2 in random spots. Never marked a concentration of fish I would want to go back to. Caught 23 crappie, 1 largemouth. Filleted 12. 179DCB90-7F2E-4C1F-8951-B1690340B239.jpeg

Took the boat in yesterday for annual tune up and dropped of a couple seats to be re-upholsted. Headed to Tallahassee academy in about an hour to gear up. Fever setting in
