We spend most of our time fishing Toledo Bend north of the Pendleton Bridge because we find it to be the most consistently productive area offering a complete range of fish habitats.

Wind is a big factor on Toledo Bend so you always need some areas to get out of it and be able to fish productively. When those occasions occur we move to the creek areas of San Miguel and Lanan creeks. Both these areas have good populations of Crappie. When windy conditions occur, we know where to go to fish productively and enjoyably.

Crappie fishing starts in March with peak months being May, June, July and continues through the fall.

We fish for Crappie year round at Covington Guide Service.

For Crappie fishing we use colored Lowrance Electronics units HDS family and LMS520. These units are the best for deep water structure fishing for Crappie and easy to operate. Very user friendly.

Over the past 7 years we have built many brush piles for Crappie Brush piles of willow and bamboo are the mainstay for catching Crappie consistently.


24' Bentley Pontoon Boat provides comfortable fishing and includes a porta-pottie (very handy!), Bimini top, and CD player. Accommodates up to 8 for fishing.
