J.Kent there are several areas that you might want to try. The docks that are right in front of the dry storage will have crappie on them right now. The areas you want to fish will be right in front of each floating dock. Put a jig on and use a float. Set the float about 4 ft and throw right in front of each slip. Normally you will pick up 2 or three off each one. The colder it gets, the better the bite will be! This will last until the middle of January.
The second place is the Madison county boat docks area. This area is up river from Ditto and behind Hobbs Island. Go into the boat harbor there and act like you are going to the ramp. On the way in you want to fish the boathouses on the right. There is one in particular that has an opening about 4 feet. There is a blue tarp hanging down in front. You will have to shoot this dock. Use 1/32 oz jig with a bass assassins. Crystal shad is a good color to start with. Shoot all the back and concentrate on the back corners. The crappie are small but every now and then there will be a good one mixed in.
Another area is the mouth of Aldridge creek. If you walk down the rocks on the west side of the point that faces west there is a tree that washed in several years ago. This tree is at the junction of where Aldridge creek enters from the river channel. You might have to use a pair of waders if you donít have boat. Walk out onto the sandbar and cast as far as you can towards the bridge. Aim for the far right green light that is on the bridge for barges. Let it go down about 12 feet and start working it back. You will get hung a lot here so bring plenty of jigs.
Hope this helps and good luck!
