  2. Melvern - We went back to Melvern and had very good sucess on crappie. The fish are holding in 20 - 25 feet of water and we are catching them about 16 -21 feet deep. Other fishermen were doing ok.

  5. Melvern Lake today - fish were fairly shallow, 8 to 13 feet deep. They were more agressive with the bite. We threw back only one small fish and kept our limit of nice crappie.
