Calero Reservoir Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- On and near the launch ramp the Crappie fishing has been pretty good the past few
days with water temperatures around 79 80 degrees late in the day. The Crappie
seem to be hitting on a double set of Crappie jigs mostly yellows neon greens reds
and blues. The cove across from the launch ramp and the larger cove on the dam
side about fifty yards in have both been very productive using the same jigs.View Tip Location on Map
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.
