Heading that way this weekend. Wondered if anyone was catching any crappies at Coralville or McBride?ICEMAN101ParticipantOctober 21, 2014 at 2:19 amPost count: 762
I’ve heard that Macbride is going pretty good but the size is going to be marginal (8″-10″) with the occasional 12″. Whereas Coralville seems to be a little slower right now but if you find a good school you may average 12″ fish.
I like to fish the res because you never know when you might get a 15″+.webbgolf1ParticipantOctober 21, 2014 at 3:14 amPost count: 243
My dad and I have always had good luck at the right time of the year at Coralviille on teh high banks by Mahaffey Bridge. Is this where we should start? thanks for the tips.webbgolf1ParticipantOctober 21, 2014 at 4:54 pmPost count: 243
Never fished for crappies at McBride. Do you just find a brush pile and start fishing??jgib551ParticipantOctober 21, 2014 at 5:54 pmPost count: 717
This time of year I usually find them back near shore
again at Macbride.Locate downed trees and fish off the deeper water ends of them.Brush piles, many which are visible on the surface, are also productive.One of my favorite fall spots is along the rocky causeway on the south arm.Also good for walleye in the fall.sledmanParticipantOctober 22, 2014 at 2:04 amPost count: 351
What jgib551 says. I fish from shore and fish the lake often. Sometimes tight to shore. Sometimes with a casting bobber out to the far structure next to deeper water.
Sometimes early or midmorning, or middle of the afternoon. Never know when the bites gonna happen in the fall. The hard winter did take it’s toll.
