I know here in Marietta, GA is a long way off, but yesterday I tried my luck with crappie for the first time since early November, in a 15 acre pond. Wasn't expecting much to happen, but managed to catch 16 on a black/bubble gum/chartreuse jig (got em last year from Ms Cheryl at Weiss Guide Service). Largest two were 1 lb. 6 oz and 1 lb. Others just keepers. Floated jig under adjustable float (3-5' below float) over brush pile in 10' of water. Used split shot about 18" above the jig to cast it out to the brush pile. Slow, slow retrieve.Action lasted for warmest 45 minutes of the day about 3 pm, then nothing. Some had eggs. Water is clear and still cold, not sure how cold as I was fishing from the bank. Got my spirits and hopes up for the pre-spawn! Good luck and be safe. Does anyone know when Brushy Branch area may hold some crappie? Thanks.
