55' in surface to bottom or were they suspended in 55'?
The trees I found in 90' were about 15' tall so that would bring it up to 75' or so. I swear I was graphing something in those trees...

saw two little 1 1/2" white crappie floating dead Wednesday after the stripers had come through destroying what I thought were all shad :dontknow: catch nice size in the spring both black and white but after that I am chasing stripers so I don't work at the crappie fishing. Occasionally catch nice size ones on spoons during the summer it is amazing how deep the bigger crappie hide to avoid the stripers have caught several where the air bladder is in their mouth almost like lg. mouths at times.

How deep would you think is "too deep" to catch a crappie? I found some beautiful structure at 90' in Humbug when I was striper fishing back there last week.  I know they won't necessarily be that deep, but if the structure/trees are down there, would they maybe go? If I can catch crappie at Plez, I'll take that over stripers any day.

I wasn't with Kevin on this trip, but I can say I haven't really noticed any changes in the crappie fishing.  When I've targeted them over the last 15 years or so I've fished plez I've been able to find them and catch them fairly easily and decent numbers.  What I can't figure out is how to find bigger ones.  I don't know if the habit doesn't work for large crappie or what, but I have never noticed a shortage in the population. 

I haven't caught a crappie there in over a decade, so catching 1 would be an "upward trend" for me. lol

I was talking to a guy on the Arizona Striper Fishing group on Facebook who said he's been nailing crappie at Plez for the last 4-5 years. He's been noticing a real upward trend with the crappie population there. It made me a little interested in heading out there for crappie instead of stripers!

Also, the subject of your post is "5/16". Was this a trip in May or June?

Good catch Phreek! Fixed now, it was June not May.

This report on Lake Pleasant gives me hope of catching a few more crappie while I am still able to get out there in this life.  My favorite crappie lake has been allowed to die again as confirmed with a phone call today to the SC game and fish.  Probably another 3 to 5 years before SC has "keepable" crappie and that is only if we get unusual/unlikely rain/snow up north in the next few years.
