    Bill,I don't know if your refering to the spawn bite or the winter bite. According to the crappie guides on Canton Lake, the winter bite is just about over. The pre-spawning bite starts about when the redbuds start blooming.

    I haven't been up to Ellsworth for some time but I heard they've been fair to good on minnows and jigs from about 12 to about 25' for several weeks now.

    You know, come to think of it I might have to get up there and try around the rocks before too long.

    I got a good mess of crappie down here last weekend before all the rain came in. Going to see if they're still cooperating this weekend. I was just fishin a farm pond down by the Red River. When they are on, they're ON... but it took a while to get a good mess of them, they ain't kicked it in high gear yet. I think they are just now starting to get heated up.

    I've caught a couple the last couple of days in the throw net up in the feeder creeks around the Sallisaw Oklahoma area so it's should be starting.

    Chris, welcome to the B.O.C. I believe I saw you and your boys at Guthrie Lake. I live in the houses to the east of the neck everyone's been catching the little crappie at. They were bitin like crazy, then stopped after the rain. The bite started back this afternoon though.

    I took my girls out today in Stroud. Not one bite! Granted i did not stay long the girls were complaining too much. I know i a little while longer and i could have found them. Maybe next time.
