Default Black Friday crappie

All but one caught on minnows in 12-15 fow but we’re about 6-8 ft deep. Saturday we only had 4 but caught some nice smallmouth off of bluff walls. No pics of them. Gonna try again Saturday, but going to do something different. Gonna try shooting docks with jigs. Will let y’all know how that goes.

I'm not much into crappie fishing in the winter, so any tips on techniques or location (bluffs, brushpiles, flats, etc.) Is greatly appreciated.

Docks in deeper water and brushpiles. Y’all know how hard it is to find those brushpiles in 12-20 fow of water on Old Hickory, hell the lake is basically a flat with a river channel. We’ve put brush out in high percentage areas, off points where a creek bed is near so that we could have some crappie areas. They’re not stacked up in big schools yet. But where there’s one there’s 3-5. Hope that helps. Merv, when you get ready I’ll trade ya a crappie trip for a hybrid trip! Or we can kidnap Tnbronzeback and make him cook us brats while we catch sauger

I'll trade ya trips anytime you want, just say the word.
BUT! pick a day away from a full moon and a few days after a cold front hits.
Cold fronts kill the hybrids.
Went today and only caught 10 fish. 4 LM bass, 2 whites and 4 hybrids. Tough day.

Nice fish, skillet.
Definitely stay away from Merv if there is a full moon.

Yup, those days (and nights) have already been reserved by SAMBOLIE.

Will have to schedule something in a few weeks. I close on my new house this week and move this weekend. It’s going to really cut my fishing time out till we are settled. So I’m gonna end up “lurking” and living through y’all for a few weeks. Good luck to you guys, and leave me a few.
