Haven't been out much lately, but the crappie on Wheeler seem to be starting the move up into shallower water. Sort of a pre-pre-spawn pattern. Fish are being caught in water from 10 feet deep to 2 feet deep. Hit depth seems to depend on available sunlight and warming of shallows by the sun. Jigs and minnows are producing, but if you have read this forum very long, you know I only use jigs.
With the temps predicted to get VERY cold the first of the year providing the possibility of shad kills, the "sun warmed shallows" pattern should pick up right along with the pre-spawn staging. (fingers crossed)
Hope I helped!
