    Here's Crappie Reports from Saturday & Sunday (3/11 & 3/12) on Chickamauga Lake in Chattanooga, Tennessee, courtesy www.ChooChooFishing.com:

    SATURDAY- Another fine day on Wolftever Creek. A lot more crappie anglers out today, and bass anglers. I had to wait in line to put the boat in at 6:45 am. Had a great day sharing the joys of catching crappie with Charles Brewer and Tim Vaughn. Average day overall... we had 23 keepers and a couple of bonus channel cats. A few of the crappie were monsters. Actually I don't think we pulled the biggest ones out of the box for pictures. No pattern on the fish... we caught some over 14 feet of water, others in 8 and still others in 4 feet. They're really scattered.

    SUNDAY- Our bite was a little better today than yesterday. We fished shorter time and caught more. Quit at about 12:30 with 28 good quality keepers and we caught a ton of short fish. The standard "trolling tube jigs" technique, although my partner had some little baits called "Lit'l Fishies." (see http://creme.zoovy.com/category/lit_l_fishie_minnow.112inchlitlfishie/) They did WELL! I may have to order some. Another friend fishing solo toughed it out a little longer and took home a limit (30). Don't know if it was just a better bite today, or if the fish are starting to turn on a little better. I hope the latter. Mallory Davis with a couple of today's take. (photo attached)
