The shad are moving up river and the bayou and the crappie are

heads. water temp 63 .

I've heard some crappie will drop eggs in late fall. High 50 to low 60 degree water temp triggers it.

I have cleaned a lot of crappie here in the last few weeks and none of them
have much roe in them.

I have caught some white bass that have had semi-soft to nearly fully formed eggs in them in the late fall...but was told that the eggs needed the cold temperatures to 'activate'. If the waters never got cold enough, the fish would either not spawn and reabsorb the eggs, or the eggs would be rendered sterile and the spawn would fail.

Maybe it's the same for crappie? People start catching them shallow again in the fall, find some evidence of roe forming and begin a "crappie spawn in the fall too" narrative??
