Anyone know a good crappie hole,on either lake. Want to do a little Crappie fishing with the wife in first week or two of May. Don't worry about me fishing it out or nothing like that I'd probably only go once or twice a year max. I'm more familiar with the South ends of both lakes and not that dang familiar with the South ends.
They could still be shallow in May. It depends on the weather. If you can't find them shallow, just back off and try fishing standing timber. Keep moving till you find them. Once you find a good hole, you can usually catch quite a few.
Look for good channel swings or ditches that cut through the flats with any kind of brush on the point side of the swing...fish will load up there. You can see good areas in both screen shots below, look at the tight contour lines off the end of the flats or the underwater points created where a ditch or drain cuts through.
