I have been fishing this city park lake for the last two weeks catching crappie up to 14" using tiny 1/48 chub heads with #10 hooks tied with gadwall feathers under a 3/4" weighted float. The water is cold so have to fish them real slow. Cork goes under and hook something good that starts peeling drag from my reel. Only using 2 lb. test Maxima so lighten up drag and take my time and this big slab comes to the top and I lip her, easily my biggest Black crappie. Measured 17 3/4" and weighed 3-01 on my buddy's new scale. Then I released her and hopefully she makes babies this spring. Catching some bass, bluegill and redear too.
