I fished Silver Lake located in Brinson GA - in the Silver Lake Wildlife Management Area (north side of Lake Seminole) yesterday. Water temperature 63 degrees. Bass have yet to find comfort in heading shallow to spawn. I caught a half dozen of them in areas outside what I would call normal spawning grounds - nothing over a couple pounds. Targeted crappies/specks primarily this trip. Found a few willing biters (9) in 10-15ft with a white Roadrunner Jighead and BPS Triple Ripple Grub in threadfin shad color. Fish were 13-14.5 inches. They made for wonderful table fare this evening breaded with Zatarain's Fish Fry.

My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small.

Nice!  those are some good eating fish.


How does Lake Seminole look?  High?  Muddy?

Seminole remains high, but receding. Here's a link to water level at Woodruff Dam on Seminole.

Thanks for the report Swede and some nice looking Crappies. It's just about a month and a half before I start my yearly Crappie fishing trip and I can't wait. ~c~
