    Saturday 10/14/06, Clinton Lake. 28 degree take off tempature. Light winds and lots of sunshine. Lake temps dropped 10 degrees this week with rains and strong winds. Not much prefishing done. Steve Cross took top place with a 7 fish limit weighing 7.18lbs. He also brought in the largest crappie weighing in at 1.37lbs. 2nd place weighed in 6.43lbs, 3rd, 5.47. Winning tactic was fishing the chanels edges that had brush-piles sunk there. Sunday, 10/15/06, Perry Lake. Rain welcomed the teams at the take-off. Winds from the SE at 10 to 20mph. Lake temps in the lower 60’s. Brooks/Kellum topped the field with a 6.56 bag. Steve Cross 2nd with 6.14lbs. 3rd place had 6.02. Big fish, 1.30lber caught by Steve Cross. Steve fished the rip-rap-rocks at the marinas and bridges by himself cause his partner had to work this weekend. Good job Steve We’ll be watching you MUCH closer next season. Thanks to Crappie Busters for another great season. <*)}}}><

    Thanks for the report Chatt. Were they using livebait or plastics? Can you tell us more about the techniques used?
    Thanks, Bill

    Bill, most were using jigs on both days. The fish I seen being cleaned after Sunday’s weigh-in, were full of shad. The most popular jig was a 1/8oz with a blue/chartruse body. Some sent was added as a Berkly Crappie nibble or a paste such as Mega-strike. Vertical jigging was the trick and deep into the brush-piles. On the rip-rap rocks, the jig had to touch the rocks and lift. Depths were ranging from 12 to 18ft. Since I wasn’t fishing it ,,,not many minners died trying <*)}}}><
