Going to Osage tomorrow perch jerkin .... heard the crappie are biting there will probably try some kitties as well. I have fished Carbondale up the road but never been to osage sfl. what's the best bait there? I have shad heads,turkey liver, worms and dip bait. How deep have you been fishing. Are there any hot spots I should know about? What about motor restrictions? I'll be in my Jon Boat I'm sure I'll have at least 5-10 gallons of soybeans to chum with. Did catch 10 crappie at Melvern on sunday one 16.5" and 2.7 lbs only had 2 keepers still pretty deep. Didn't catch any at Pomona but went to the spillway and caught a 3lb walleye batteries died on digital camera so no shots.
