East Fork Lake Summer Crappie action…excellent!

Monday June 27, 2011. High water (5 feet above Summer pool) Clear water; a little debris floating. Water Temp…79 degrees

If you can find Crappie, you can catch Crappie. I had to go to a dear friend of mine…Larry Powers to get a few Crappie locations and tid bits. Larry follows Crappie and knows many spots in East Fork Lake to catch these little critters. Larry and his father Rodney Powers (good friends of mine) are dedicated Crappie Tournament fishermen who do well on East Fork Lake. They know hundreds of spots that hold Crappie, year around. As I said, “If you can find Crappie, you can catch them”.

Chad and I actually fish for Bass this time of the year, but the Bass are hard for us so when it gets like this…we shift over to Crappie action. As anyone knows East Fork Lake is great Crappie Lake but can be real tough Bass fishing!

As for East Fork Crappie action Chad and I have been fishing isolated stumps and catching a few White Crappie. Nice ones too! Monday evening when the lake rose Crappie changed patterns and we found White Crappie on standing timber. DEEP ON THE ROOTS! If you can believe that. DEEP! The water rose and Crappies seemed to go deeper. Hard to believe but that’s the way it was for Chad and Dad Monday Evening. Tuesday’s are Bass Tournament night on East Fork so Chad and Dad will probably fish for Crappies again. Crappies are alot of fun! Lot’s of action! Lots of fin pricking in the hands! Lots of Crappie slime! Nice keepers too!

Crappies have been nice this year as last year seemed to produce lots of 8 1/2 inchers. So far this year it’s been real nice Crappie. I made a comment to Chad last night about the thin slabs in the Whites we’re catching. Chad said, “That will change in about a month”. Why? Crappies begin to gorge themselves on food supply in effort to store fat for the Winter. BIG SLABS then. Looking forward to it.

The Lake is swarming (right now) with vast amounts of 1-2″ shad fry. Excellent food supply for the huge population of Crappie in East Fork Lake. That’s Rick Roehm’s Crappie report for Mid-Summer Crappie action at East Fork Lake. Hope to see you there. Enjoy life fishing in Southwestern Ohio’s excellent Crappie water. Thanks for stopping by the Blog. I appreciate your visit. Last night we had Crappie for supper. Loved them! Excellent eaters! God Bless! Keep in touch.
