Mid-April here in Texas, crappie are in full spawn. We picked up a dozen minnows and headed out to Lake Lewisville. Action was good all morning with steady bites til around 10am. We pulled in 10 keepers; mostly crappie and a few sand bass. After the bite slowed, we ventured off to find another spot. We found a nice little cove not too far away. On my 3rd cast, I got the best bite of the day. The hook was set and I quickly began reeling in. She stayed under the entire time, not once breaking water. I had a feeling this would be the best fish of the day. Meet Mrs. Crappie…all 14’” of her. She was the biggest and fattest crappie I’d ever caught. A great way to close the day.
