I made a trip to
on Tuesday for some crappie fishing on the new
restructured Mississippi . This is the same lake that was practically consumed
by lily pads and coontail moss last year. This is my brother’s home lake where
he fishes for crappie this time of year. Conditions were not the best
considering the cold front that had passed through the day before I arrived. One
can expect cold fronts, windy conditions, and bluebird skies in the month of
March and this trip had all those conditions. Legion Lake
The reward for the trip was this nice catch using the following tube jigs loaded with nibbles. There were some nice slabs here.
Closed faced spincast reels with 11 ft. jigger poles rigged with 6 lb. test line are your best combos when Spider Fishing, because of the reach one can achieve with this type of pole.
My brother standing by his boat with 8 jigger poles set up ready for action fishing with the curly tail crappie jigs. Think of the amount of water one can cover when Spider Fishing
An image of what this lake looks like this past summer before reconstruction took place this year, notice the moss pads in the distance and all the growth around the edges, much cleaner to fish now.
