I just can't believe how easy those lakes are to limit out on with BIG SLAB CRAPPIE....

lot different on lakes where the crappie are not pounded everyday like they are
here in the two creeks everyone fishes here on houston. you can sit on one pile
and limit a lot of times on other lakes.
Glad you got to try a few different lakes close must be nice which one did
you like the best.

Wow, that is one side of DFW to the other. You covered a lot of ground between lakes.

Congrats on the success on the various lakes.

Definitely Fork with Bridgeport a close second.... there are more areas to fish and less recreational waters... fairly dangerous for a careless person with all the timber but that where the fish are...

Yeah Greg I covered lots of ground in three days and put my hands on over 300+ crappie easily....

Sk,
I haven't been to Fork in many years, but have made about 12 trips there spending many days at a time each trip. While on Fork where did you launch ? I prefer Oak Ridge Marina. They are located on a clean area, devoid of stumps which means worry free running to and from the immediate launch area. The boating lanes were clearly marked with buoys last time I was there. Good to hear Fork is still absent of most pleasure craft. I was after Largemouth on those trips but I witnessed some very large crappie caught. The lines and colors on the crappie there seem to be more distinct. Gorgeous actually.
Back to the stumps. I often tell others that there are two things that I'm most afraid of while on the water. One is stumps. The other is lightning. You can't control the aftermath but by using good planning and good judgment its possible to avoid both......
....I've felt the presence of each on this lake...that's another set of stories...

My brother lived in Runaway Bay on Bridgeport for a couple of years. He was a cook in the country club, not a uppity country club member, so he didn't have a boat or much time to fish that lake. I did visit him once though and Bridgeport looks wide open without much structure visible. Were the fish oriented to submerged brushpiles or just on ledges and contour changes?

250Y we put in at FM17 ramp.... it's the stump filled area and mostly fished in the Birch creek area.... not sure if it's just this time of year but those crappie got a special thump over there....

Greg we mostly fished brush piles.... and yes I didn't see any timber in Bridgeport it's wide open....

Sounds like an amazing backyard trip SK!!! Congrats on all the catches!

I was catching 55 million year old fish for the last week and a half in Utah.

Yep. I'll post a few pictures in a new thread as I unwrap them and get them prepped for display.
