Nice replies, we found the crappies on the drop offs and not congregated together but welling to take the bait as it dropped to them. We had to move from coves to coves to catch a limit. The white bass were schooling and easy pickings if you can locate them in 15 to 20 FOW. It's fun when they are thick on the bottom, just jigging them up. Any bait will suffice but spoons seems to be the key. For crappies, paddle tail, fin spins, and Johnson crappie busters curly tails are key since water were heavily stain this time of the year. Good luck and be safe.

I have been reading posts on FishExplorer for awhile and just signed up so I could post today. Anyway, I use live minnows (purchased shiners from a licensed dealer in Berthoud, CO and in Hasty, CO) in areas where live bait is legal. I have been catching from 4 in to 12 in largemouth bass. I took a trip to Two Buttes Reservoir (nearly dry) this week. Behind the dam, in what is called the Black Hole, there are fish. I lost the biggest bass I have ever seen there. Anyway, I do not eat fish but judging by your pictures, you certainly do. Enjoy!
