My wife and I launched at 6:45 at Long Creek ramp.  Chilly ride this morning!!!!  We both started out throwing green pumpkin chartreuse pepper tube jig on a 1/16th oz. head. 

We threw to the bank and fished out to about 15 feet of water.  Most crappie was caught right close to bank out to 10 feet depth.  The bite was very light and sometimes you would just feel extra weight on your line.  You would catch one or two in a spot and then you would have to move to a different spot.  We did find one spot that we caught 7 or 8 on it.  We also threw a chartreuse body with a white tail marabou jig and caught a few on it, but most came on the tube jig.  The bite was mostly over by 10:30.  We ended the day with 21 keepers, we did not catch any short fish today.  We also lost several crappie right at the boat.  Water temp was 57.5 when we started and 58.8 when we ended.
