Crappie Fishing at San Carlos Lake

By Darr Colburn

This is the third year in a row that me and my boys Parker and Paul have headed to San Carlos Lake for a day to do some crappie fishing during their spring break.  We had a great time on the water even though the catching was a little slow.  The storm we had last weekend turned things off a bit.  We did manage a few fish and had a great time.  The technique for this time of year is to slow troll with 2 inch grubs and minnows.  You are trolling along right next to lots of other boats.  Parker and Paul asked every other boat how many fish they had caught and showed off their catch.  By the afternoon I am sure they had talked to everyone on the lake!  The weather was beautiful and we could not have asked for a nicer day on the water.  We headed off the lake by about 2 pm with 5 fish in the cooler.  The water temperature was about 60 degrees and Paul even decided to take a swim before we headed home.  Paul caught the biggest and the most fish this trip.  Remember to take a kid hunting or fishing.
