Not just on the Chain, but most of the lakes, even the smller lakes. I was out on Irene Saturday caught enough for a meal and half of them still had spawn. Wished I would have checked for it before takeing them home. Would have let them go back. I don't know if they will still go in to spawn now or not? Anyone know. confused.gif

My theory is they missed the spawn this year because the water warmed too quickly. If the water hits the right temp and the eggs are not developed enough to spawn then I imagine they wait. If the water continues to warm beyond what they can handle up in the shallows then I imagine it's game over until next year. I believe fish have the ability to reabsorb their eggs. This seems logical to me, but I have no scientific background to back this up. I do know I have caught crappies with spawn in them during every month of the year.
