Have you tried vertical jigging in 22-28' of water?  Granted, it would have to be a relatively calm day for a tube.
We have been catching some there with minners.  icon_mrgreen 
 
 

I knew it! When the chips be down the mighty minner saves the day and gets suppa!  icon_eek icon_cool icon_biggrin

We use gamakatsu series 208 offset circle hooks in size 6/0 or 8/0. The 6/0 will catch those pesky itty bitty kitties and will hold 60 pound fish easily. Never had one gut hooked with either. You can get them at Barlows.

Check Craigslist daily under pets. Lots of free pets on there or low re-home fee. Changes daily

Your right its not hat deep there but the crappie will relate to structure and in the creek channel will be the deepest water fishing from HWY 380. Also, the pilings should be shaded which crappie like.

I haven't wet a hook since March but this time of year is usually when the lake turns over and the thermocline changes. Lavon was raised in 1975 and all around the lake is a ledge, more pronounced in some areas than others. The steeper the decline in depth the better. Now this ledge should be around 16 to 18 feet and should be just above where the new thermocline will set. This depth will be oxygen rich and a haven for shad. Where you find the shad you will find the kitties. If in a boat, driftin along the ledge from 15 feet deep to 19 feet deep can produce limits of eaters. Try south side of island or south of Tiki entrance into lake, east arm east or west side. Or any other hard clay bottom will work. The key is to drift parallel to the ledge and not over it. This way your drift (bait) is always in the target zone.

Yes, that means the wind direction is crucial or ya have to use yer motor to power drift. There are lots of places on Lavon like this. Find several areas for different wind directions and you can most always catch kitties this time of year.

Welcome to the forum!  icon_cool Thanks for a report that was also your first post!  icon_cool icon_biggrin Refreshing to see.

This time of year I always had the best luck for crappie in 12 to 16 feet of water around structure. If I was fishing the 380 bridges this time of year, I would fish the creek cuts and cast to deeper water around the bridge pilings. Easy to do with a slip cork set-up fishing from the bank.
