Whose the diehards? Chad and Rodney Powers. They went yesterday and hit the Crappie pretty hard. They caught whites and blacks both. Brought home 40 real nice fish. Almost filled the 5 gallon bucket. Certain parts of the lake (in the coves) had ice on it. The water had to be close to 36-39 degrees. Crappies were eating minnows and by afternoon they started the frenzy. So, is January Crappie at East Fork Lake typical? Was yesterday for Chad and Rodney. Used every minnow they had. Chad (whose not partial to using dead minnows) told me the Crappie were even hitting the dead minnows that fell on the floor of the boat. A great day at East Fork! So, is January Crappie fishing at East Fork Lake, “For diehards only?”
P.S…Get your minnows at the Boars Head.
