This has been one of the best springs ever for me for good sized crappies on Patoka. Caught a bunch of 12-14 inch fish and a few bigger. All have been caught on jigs or roadrunners and most caught less than 3 feet deep.
When this present weather pattern moved in I quit fishing. I just do not enjoy getting blown all over the lake.
Good luck, they are out there and once you get them figured out you will have a ball with them.
