Crappie have moved to the South Fork

The crappie bite is still on and crackin' at lake isabella.  I guess because of the low lake levels lately the crappie are not where I usually find them, near Camp 9 in the trees and weeds and around French Gulch marina.  I was a little worried that the crappie were all gone, I knew that I had caught a bunch, but I didn't think I had single handedly wiped them out.  Well it turned out that my instincts were good.  There are plenty of crappie left, and I found them out in the south fork near Paradise Cove and Kissack Bay. I am usually on a boat or at least a float tube, so I am not sure how the shore fishing would be but I caught about 50 nice size keepers, probably 70% of them greater than a pound, last weekend.  By the way the fish seem to be getting fatter, even the smaller ones have a nice thick fillet on either side. So get out there and get them before they hide out again.

Happy fishing!!
