The surface temperature has dropped back down to below 52 again and the level has dropped to 546.60 with heavy generation for several hours a day. It is to get into the 70's tomorrow with a good chance of rain. The crappie are on brush on the main lake in 20-30 feet of water. Lots of them and big ones too. If it is windy drift a jig or grub over the brush and use your trolling motor to go past them again from the other way. If it is not windy use a slip float and minnow or a 1/4 ounce Bink's spoon right over them. Set the float about 9-feet deep. Use the spoon as near the top of the brush as you can get without getting hung up. I am catching big ones every day but they are finicky and either move or stop biting after catching a big one. I rig my slip float with a bobber stopper, glass bead, balsa pencil float, split shot and a #4 red true turn hook. All work just switch back and forth after they have seen one for a while. Put the bigger minnows on the red hook and the smaller ones on the grub. Change minnows when they get tired.
