The weather has been changing between hot and cold but the Crappie are still biting. We're finding and catching some Crappie shallow in the water column still schooled up in their winter pattern and others are 10-20 feet deep or deeper. (Though some schools are smaller than what we've seen earlier in the season) Some schools are in deep water and others are near the bank, especially in the late afternoon. The Crappie are hitting corks and minnows or jigs. Blue Ice has been a productive color for us the past few days. A chartreuse or pink jig head seems to enhance the bite, and crappie niblets also seem to help. Though the wind has been brutal and we've had a few cold fronts, this has been a productive time of the year to fish Lake of the Ozarks.
