    From what I read on ............ and the fishing reportsTruman and Stockton have been doing real good. I'm from the otherside of the state and can tell you Mark Twain has been real good for the last 2 weeks. Hope you find some fish, most of mine have been 25 to 30 foot of water 8 to 12 feet deep.

    Nothing around here lately. Should start biting better as it starts cooling off. Have you been trying for them lately at Wyandotte ? If so where at ?

    Been catching a few lately but no limits. Catching most on brush piles with a lot of smaller ones to weed thru.

    Two of us fished there yesterday 8/29. Found the fish feeder empty and managed to catch four legal channels up to 20 inches.

    After catfishing we checked the crappie out. We caught 63 legal crappie but only brought home seven. All caught on jigs and crappie nibbles around the standing timber. The largest crappie caught was a 15 incher something very unexpected for that lake. After yesterday I will probably be checking on the Louisburg crappie more often.

    A buddy of mine caught about 20 keepers up at mazingo, last week. I dont remember what bait he was using but they were drifting in a boat. He said they threw alot of small ones back.

    We caught quite a few at Big Hill Wed. evening but nothing worh bragging about.Caught around 40 but only maby 10 were worth keeping.Soon as the weather cools down a little the big boys should start bitting better.

    I'm curious as to the depths the fish were caught at and baits and particular pattern you were using and was the evening time after dark or daylight going into darkness. It's my understanding some of the better crappie fishing there is usually after dark. Its cool and I understand if you don't prefer to elaborate and share further details.
