    Went down again this afternoon - caught 9, put three small (but legal) ones back. All males again - I don't get it, is the spawn over or still yet to come??

    They aren't going to spawn like you are accustom to (they didn't last year either).
    Ameren has taken to keeping the lake low(er) until right before Memorial day and that is not conducive to a good fish spawn. The only ones unaffected are the catfish and drum because they typically spawn later.

    The spawn can happen in any level, its the changes and the murkiness of the water that drives whether they are in 1-2 foot or 5-8 foot of depth. I've had years where I've caught one every cast, but they were dinks ( a lot of throwbacks), and other years (like this) where they are harder to come by but all are bigger ones. Personally I'll take the big ones.

    I've gotten my share this year, I'm still going down to see if it can get any better or if its done - I'm almost ready to make the shift to boats and beer now.

    Came down late Thursday night and am having a tough time finding crappies that will bite. They show up on the Humminbird, just cannot get them to bite. Caught a few last night just before sundown that were down about 7 feet in 20 feet of water, but all but 2 were small. We will give it another shot sometime today.
