Fishing report for May 22

Brent’s best bet: If you want to get in on some of the best crappie fishing of the year at Smithville Lake, you’d better hurry. After the spawn was delayed by the weather, the fish are finally moving to the banks and they are providing excellent fishing. But many fishermen think it will be brief and that large numbers of crappies will move shallow, spawn, then move deeper again where they are harder to find.
