depends on species, small mouth are close to spawning time and water temp, most warm water species 62 degress, different species spawn in different type of stucture

the books say 62. but I think later say 66-68 and the moon plays a significant role. that's why we do crappie fest around the moon cycle.

Every year I try and chase the crappie spawn.  It seems like about a week of 80 degree weather does the trick. Maybe they wait for good weather like myself.  I usually fish Bartlettand the last 5 years it's been a crap shoot, no consistency what so ever.   :banghead:

that's the truth, bartlett can be weird and especially with SRP dumping the lake again this spring :angry4:
