Oologah Lake Crappie and White Bass 10/15/15
Today, I had the Berlin’s out for a beautiful day crappie fishing on Oologah Lake in Oklahoma. We got an early start since it was going to get up to the lower 90’s today. (It is October…right?!?!?!?!) We started the morning out with slick water and cool temps. The brush piles were not holding fish like they had been. We managed a few keepers the first couple of hours and a few crappie too small to go in the ice chest. We also caught blue catfish, channel catfish, sunfish, and a variety of sizes of largemouth bass. Not really what we were looking for. The wind picked up to a light ripple on the water and we decided to look at drifting for blue catfish if the wind cooperated. Well…it died down as soon as we decided to switch gears. We hit a couple more piles with only short fish. We headed back to the brush pile we started the morning at and saw a laying on the bottom. It had about a dozen marks on it and we caught 9 of them. On one end of the pile were crappie and the other white bass. It was a slow beautiful day on Oologah Lake. The Berlin’s were my middle school teachers and have gone on trips with me the last 3 years and we always have a blast. Thank you for the good time!
