Chickamauga Lake Crappie Fishing Report

8 delicious slabs officially kickoff crappie season for us.After weeks of speculation, the bite has started. It was a modest stringer, but it was a stringer! Last week we ended up with two keepers that we threw back and virtually nothing else. This week there was a keeper in the live well by the time I got in the boat and steady action all naught. It wasn’t fast and furious, but from 7:00p to about 9:30p the action was consistent.

Of particular note, white maribou jigs did most of the damage, even in the dark. We took six dozen minnows and threw out about a dozen, so the action has come a long way in just a week or two. The weather was similar to last week with a high in the mid-seventies and a predicted overnight low of 58 degrees or so. The week before it was in the low eighties and the following day produced incredible hail and tornado storms. It is an el nine weather year, but so far it seems that the crappie are going about business as any other year despite wild and mild weather.

We ended up with eight keepers all but two over 12 inches and loaded with eggs.
