Title: Fiddlesticks!

This lake still has me dumbfounded as to where the crappie hide this time of year.  Tried shallow, deep and inbetween, in the brush, in the grass and under the bridge.  Caught 4 nice ones under a bridge and then they just quit.  Had fun catching ditch pickles though.....they really like a chartreuse jig.  Oh well, I'll find them when they get back on the summer pattern.

That shoreline that has deep right next to shalla would be what I'd be searching fer......

And I'd be watchn for areas with the least amount of heavy slim algae as they tend to not like it from my experience.....

Had this same problem last year at this time.  I've looked in the places you mentioned but no luck.  This lake doesn't fish like a cold water lake (at least to me anyway).  I haven't checked Martin creek that feeds this lake....they may move up the creek this time of year...?
