Stopped at a local pond this morning to make a few casts and see if the crappie were near the shoreline. Immediately could see fish surfacing and had a good feeling that these were crappies, but the bluegill will do this as well at times.
Only had one lure tied and fortunate that is what they wanted, had a 1/16 oz Clam Drop Tg tungsten jig with a 2” shad tail plastic. Casting out as far as possible, counting the jig down and a steady retrieve back getting hits from certain areas that the schools were using.
The longer you stood there, you could see more schools forming and surfacing giving you more casting opportunities. Always a fun feeling when this situation is happening as time goes on they either move out into more of the basin or other parts of the lake that aren’t accessible from shore.
