Planning a trip to Reelfoot in late April. Anyone have a good tips or tricks for those big slab crappie? (or any of the other fish that inhabit those waters!)

I've fished it many times. I would scull my boat thru the cypress and tupelo trees with a 7 foot rod and about 4 feet of line and work a jig all around the trees and cypress knees, giving the rod tip little flicks.
I always caught as many as I wanted, along with a bunch of large bluegill.
April is a good time to go.
Plus, there's several places to eat catfish. yum.

GOOD LUCK

I used white or yellow, or, if I really got into the big bluegills I'd switch to black which the bluegills seem to like a little better.
now don't forget to hit the catfish eatin joints.
