Neil and I jumped on the opportunity to Fish for black crappie with the very good conditions, A lot of times you'll see in a post I'll write "the pressures high" or low. By this I'm referring to the barometric pressure which stood at 30.44 yesterday after a long day of high pressure it started to drop a little as well as have south winds South winds play a very important role in fishing this particular bridge because the wind will literally push all the phytoplankton and zoo plankton into one area in tern the Minnows will follow then allowing the predator pan fish to swarm in. Even better is we had even more structure more then the shopping carts we had Tree limbs, logs And also starting to get a few weeds! Now When I say south winds are pushing everything to one area I don't mean an hour of south winds, We started generating south winds yesterday evening Which had several hours of time to do the job. And overall we had a blast Catching crappie non-stop for hours! enjoy the video guys.
