Back in March of this year, the Mississippi Sportsman Crappie Hotspot Series made a stop at the official home of the 3-pound crappie, Grenada Lake, and provided 10 hotspots for spring crappie fishing and tips on how to catch them.
After the article was published, Jason Golden, the owner of Lakeway Archery & Outfitters in Grenada called to compliment the March issue, and then in idle conversation let the cat out of the bag.
You know, theres a part of Grenada Lake over on the Scuna River side that all the anglers who come here to fish in the spring never see, Golden said. Its the great wintertime crappie fishing we have during the winter drawdown.
Its still Grenada Lake, including all the big white crappie we catch during the spring, but its like fishing an entirely different body of water.
