Not a lot to report from Thursday in my boat! Though I talked to 3 boat operators and a total of 5 people and there were 5 limits taken before 1:00. Gerald & I didn't fare so well! We moved around too much I figure. We hit the big 155 bridge first and put half a dozen in the box but it took us 2 hours to do it. Then we moved on to brush piles in 12-17 fow and added another half dozen to the box. Then on to another area of vertical structure and added 4 more. Gerald took 16 home for the grease. I found out that if we had stayed at the bridge, the bite picked up shortly after we left. Anyway, if you're headed to Palestine for a crappie trip, get to the 155 bridge EARLY for a fair bite and STAY there but keep moving around till you get your limit. The fish were holding at ALL Column's, around the cross beam. (9-12 feet below surface.
Fish are being caught on miners (of course :TskTsk ), my Grape Limeade & my Snowball or White Lightening and of course, my Lake Palestine Special.
It was still a GREAT morning on the water, mainly due to starting off with this...

 

I missed the best shot when the sky behind the trees was more orange than silver, but I was driving to the ramp. It was a nice morning and the bite is only going to get better!

Any day on the water is a good day!   16 ain't bad at all, would feed my family with probably some left overs.   Great report!  Looks like we may not get much fishing in this afternoon before the rains hit.

Still sounds like a good trip since I have not been in a while and have found very few keepers in my trips this year.

Doesn't sound too bad to me.  You got to spend time on the water and you ended up with enough fish for your partner to take home.   :clap
