Ron DaRosa Outdoors Fishing Report

Crappie fishing is on fire in southern Illinois ! All area lakes are producing crappie. Recently fished Crab Orchard and Lake of Egypt and had no trouble putting fish in the boat. Both lakes have fish in the 8 to 15 feet of water range. Vertical jigging soft plastics is all that is needed. Water temps ranged from the high 50s to low 60s. The time is now for crappie !
