The Crappie Are Biting Like Crazy!

Santa Margarita Lake - CA (San Luis Obispo County)

by Santa Margarita Lake Staff

The crappie are biting like crazy. Gotta let out here before 10 AM or try the evening but they are pulling up average 1.1-1.9 pounders! Bass are still between 30-60 feet off shore down at least 15 feet going soft win baits. Either a trout or panfish look a like. Catfish will hit on a bundle of live worms or cut baits. Bluegill are coming near the shores surface mid day biting on live worms as well.
