crappie time
Feb 17th, 2010, 2:59am
 
I just got to this area moving from Michigan. Buying a house on or near the lake.  Plan to spend my days on the water getting to know the locals and the local fish. When do the crappie start moving shallow in Tawakoni.  How long will they stay shallow before moving off to deeper isolated structure.  Crappie in Michigan aren't much bigger than your hand.  So we never fish for them. These down here would make for some good eats.  I have plenty of time and desire to learn (when the wife lets me of coarse.)

Welcome Old Navy.  I have lived just north of the lake on FM 2947 for 5 years.  My place is on the Sabine River.  I do most of my fishing on the River, but I hear the Crappie bit fairly well on the lake.  The Crappie runs into the river have been limited the last 5 years due to the water level being down, but that should not be a problem this year!  The crappie should start moving into the shallows at any time now and then into the creeks and rivers shortly after.  I bought some land down the road on Tawakoni Lake, and am trying to sell my place here.   The MLS # is 11329117.  BTW, the river maintains a good body of water (really an extension of Lake Tawakoni) and offers nice sunny warm, and windless areas when Tawakoni is windy.  Put in points are below the bridges on Hwy 69, and Cedar Creek (on FM 2947).  I keep my boat chained up back by the river, and spend quite a bit of time back there.  It should be a great year of fishing on the river.  You can check out my fishing reports on the Sabine River Report (part of LTOF forum).  Good luck with the fishing.
