It was a fine day here in MS, temp 78, so we went crappie fishing. Surface temp out in the lake was 58 and we fished in 10 t0 14 feet and caught some fish, move into a shallow cove with a clay bottom, 52 surface degrees, as my partner wanted to rattle-trap for bass. he put a couple of jigs in his pole holder and was just dragging along the bottom in 6 to 3 feet of water and I was casting my crappie jig and dragging too and we caught crappie in that kind of water to, along with 2 bass. Thay don't know what they want to do, I sure never would have tried that pattern. Now I'm confused too. Had 15 crappie and 2 bass, happy with those 4 hrs of fishing.
