Brookville Lake (IN)

Niko Kitsinis reported catching Crappie using the Vertical Jigging Deep (20'+) technique and Bobby Garland 2" Baby Shad on Brookville Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Went out for a few hours before the game. Managed three over 13” and a handful of smaller ones. The fish were pretty tight jawed and the wind made it hard to get the jigs to the 25’ the crappie were at. The Bobby Garland baits got it done again. I rig two on a line and usually put a larger size on the bottom hook. I use the 1.5, 2, and 2.25 depending on the day. Today the bigger fish hit the 2.25. I caught them either penduluming the bait passed timber or dropping it right in the school and dancing the rod tip. The fish were mostly deep in 25-30’ in 40’+ of water. The bait fuel seems to attract a few more bites but that is really hard to know if it’s working or not. "

Brian Coburn

Perry Lake (KS)

Brian Coburn reported catching Crappie using the Vertical Jigging Deep (20'+) technique and Bobby Garland Baby Shad Swim'r on Perry Lake. Additional comments from this report: "We went out to Lake Perry in Kansas by Topeka. Thought with the nights starting to cool down we might hit some crappie. Well, we found the water temperature still in the low 80's and the brush piles vacant of fish. So we switched up our plan and started following the banks thinking they might be hanging around the drop offs with the water still warm. Well, that didn't work either. Next we hung off shore and cast to the shoreline. To our surprise, we started catching fish. Sorry to say, most of the crappie were less than 10" but the bass and catfish that we caught between the crappie kept up the level of fun we were looking for. Hoping some more cool nights keep coming our way and drop the water temperature and kick up the crappie activity in the next few weeks. Good luck all and keep your line wet."
