Water temp was a 65 degrees. I checked my spots and found a 12 inch crappie sitting next to a stump. I didn’t find any other fish sitting next to structure. Caught a few small bass and crappie in open water with a road runner.
I noticed an large overhanging tree in the creek that I normally pass. The tree sticks out about 15 feet and has about two feet of clearance all the way back to the bank. I pulled out the road runner and started shooting it under the overhanging branches. Looks like the crappie liked this tree for some reason. I pulled out over twenty fish from this one spot. Four of them were keepers.
Saw another yak in the creek not having much luck with some sort of crank bait. I gave him one of my road runners to try and went on my way. I saw him later, and he said he actually caught a crappie with the road runner.
