Video Blog: Crappie Fishing from the Coosa - February 4, 2011

I actually had a free day last Friday, and what better way to spend it then on the water. Since I needed to stop in Raleigh in the afternoon, I decided I would swing by Jordan Lake to catch some crappie for dinner. I woke up to find sleet on my car and a sporadic rain. The temperatures were in the low 30's and it was brisk outside. Thankfully, a friend of mine had committed to going with me the night before and despite the weather, he was still ready to go. So, I loaded up my gear and headed to the lake. Thankfully it was one of those nasty weather days where the fish were active and aggressive. See for yourself:

In the end I caught about 60-70 fish and brought home a stringer of about 10 crappie, which made for a delicious dinner! Tight lines!

  1. Drew, Great video. I grew up catching Crappie on the Ross Barnett Reservoir in Mississippi, and must say, not much can be as fun as filling a cooler with crappie on a jig pole.
