    Caught 110 plus crappie today at Patoka lake mostly small ones but some up to 13 inches. Fishen deep on structure 14-21 feet with minnows and slip bobber. water temp was around 51.6 in the evening when I left but other side of lake is usually a couple degrees warmer.

    In farm ponds Ive been fishin around two feet deep around cat tails and other structure. But on the reservoirs I always fish deep structure and do very well without having to move alot. Still havent got crappie jigs down yet. Crappie fishin is on fire right now with the reports Ive been gettin.
