Cooper Jester, who was fishing with his sister, Avry, and guide John Duncan on DeGray Lake, found the crappie still biting well there this week. John says he nicknamed the pair Toad Thumper (for Cooper) and Slab Slayer (for Avry, see her catch below in the DeGray Lake report from John).

LITTLE ROCK — Each year, AGFC biologists sink hundreds of fish attractors made from natural brush or environmentally friendly inert materials in water bodies ranging from community ponds to large U.S. Corps of Engineers reservoirs spanning tens of thousands of surface acres. Adding this sort of cover can help baitfish and young-of-the-year sport fish hide from predators. It also provides sport fish such as bass and crappie ambush points to conserve energy and increase their growth rate.
