Default CJ water temps

Right now the water temp at CJ is way ahead of last year, if this continues spawns could be happening quickly. We all are waiting for one spawn or another so lets use this thread to keep each other informed of the water temps, weather, reports, etc.

I'll be out at CJ tomorrow (4/20) from 9-11am (lunch), also thinking about going out after work with my son on Wed. I'll try to have as much info as possible.

This is a guideline for crappie spawning surface temps.
55-60 degrees, male crappie should be in shallow water looking for and fanning beds.
62-65 degrees, perfect spawning temps. Any bad weather/fronts can set the whole process back days or weeks.
70-75 degrees, female head to deep water, males guard nests until water reaches 75 degrees.
Crappies are very sensitive to temperature variation.

Good Luck and Happy Crappie fishing

4-20-10, fish CJ from 9:15am-11:00 without a bite, swimming jig heads with spinners (RoadRunner) and twister tails (Chart, smoke, white, yellow/white, and black/blue.
Slight wind from the NNE creating perfect ripples
Overcast
Water Temp 57 degrees @ 11:00am in the Marina and Lakeside.
Water level has been raised about a foot from last week. One of the big rocks that I fished on is now underwater.
I didn't see anyone having much fishing luck.

Been going out every morning from around 8:30/10:30,catching 7 to 10 every morning. Nothing big yet. Did notice yesterday that the shad are stacking up around the bank. Crappies will move in just after the shad move out. Probably be another week or two yet for the bigger ones to hit. Bait house guy said that a 18" and a 16" have been caught this year. Man those are big crappies!! Also a 29" 7 pound walleye was caught last week at the marina. Fishing is starting to really pick up at CJ.......Dan

It's going to be interesting to see how much all this rain we're suppose to get warms and stabilizes the water temps.
I have a week of vacation saved to take as soon as spawn starts, hopefully I can time it like last year........
Madfisher and reiner52, thanks for the updates.
Brent

Thanks Downtime, these fish have to be staging somewhere........
Jonny, I'll have to see how the weather is this weekend, if we have alot of wind and rain the lake will turn over and the fishing won't be good.
I'm going to try and get out before the rain friday from 10-1:30. Maybe if its overcast I can crank up another Walleye.

The shad are in full spawn at CJ and Clark lake. It's hard to believe there are that many shad in those 2 lakes. I threw jigs and twister tails at Clark and cranks at CJ with no luck at either place. Will be out at CJ Sat at sunrise.

Sounds like good reports guys, I'll have to make some phone calls to see if I can get someone to take me down there... Although this rain may make it a crappy weekend

Caught my 9th and 10th Walleyes before dawn this morning on the silver/black flicker crank, both were right at 17" (good eaters). Lake was beautiful, calm and hardly any wind. Not so many shad on the rocks lakeside.
Switch to a plastic shad swimbait and caught a whitebass, took my crank pole back and got my ultralight and proceded to catch 8 more whitebass, it was so much fun.............left CJ about 9:00am and cleaned the fish, call my buddy and he wanted to go out, we went to the tressel at buck creek and had no bites in the entire creek, went to the Dam and I caught 5 more WB before I had to leave at 2:00pm. He's still out there and called to say his buddy in a boat is slaying WB along the rocks. All the WB I caught were males and milked all over when I was taking the hook out, the spawn must be close
If the weather holds I'll be back Sunday before dawn again
