We fished Thursday from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. and for the first hour and the last hour and a half we caught no fish. In between we caught 24 big crappie trolling crankbaits (13) and jigs (11) in 20 to 24 feet of water east of Windy Hill. There were over sixty boats in the fleet today!!!....Art

Fleet?

I guess everybody else already know this, but I have to ask: what do you mean by the "fleet"?

The majority of the crappie are 1.5 to 2 pounds. The fleet is the mass of boats we get trolling for crappie every winter. There will be as many out of state boats as Az. boats. Last year we had a couple of days with over eighty boats, on a weekday! It's like a crappie party everyday.....Art

Art,

Are most of these boats catching the same amount of fish or does it vary? Thanks.

NO!!!! About 20% of the boats are catching 80% of the fish. The ones that get the baits running at the proper depth and speed catch by far the most fish. Many are out to enjoy the fresh air and companionship and hopefully catch a few fish.....Art
