    The fish have just quit biting! All I am getting is silvers. The water temp is in the 60s. It did rain 3 days ago but the water looks normal. I am not even getting any gills worth keeping. Any ideas? I fish a lake around structures etc. I have tried 12' and higher. Different jigs and I am just getting furstrated it has been like this for about 2 weeks.
    Help

    We are killing the crappie around here. We are fishing shallower (5 feet and less) of water around brushpiles mainly. We are doing this during low light times and they are hitting minnows much much better than jigs. Hope this helps!

    I'm gonna have to start looking for crappie again now that it is cooling down. But first I'd like to catch a cat.
